How Can I Remember

My dearest Faith,

It is hard to imagine that we’ve been married for 7 years now. It is easy these days to be consumed by the presence of our two young ones and forget that while they will some day leave the nest, we are bound together as one for life. We have spent more than half our lives side by side - a state so wondrous I oftentimes keep secret to myself for fear of offending people undergoing more difficult periods in their lives.

But today I’d like to tell you that these years been nothing short of amazing. In the early, early years before love was requited I hung on to the song “How can I remember?” by Michael Dees.

Thanks for eventually choosing me.

so I love you because I know no other way
than this: where I does not exist, nor you,
so close that your hand on my chest is my hand,
so close that your eyes close as I fall asleep.

Pablo Neruda
