…drawn together by the light of passions fire. time has tempered the flame, yet experience keeps us leaning toward each other for the comfort of hope. we can’t outrun our past, but there is no despair, for we craft every moment to form new beginnings. aging with you is all that I live for, fifty years with an option to renew. blessed with abundance, I choose you, for only you are my heart and my soul. my dear wife of these fifteen years.
