Sixnineteen: 8th year!

Author: No Comments Share:

Happy Sixnineteen!!!! 

In eight years, we’ve had 3 kids (1 on the way), the 1st when I was 25, 2nd when I was 29, and now that I am turning 33. We’ve lived in 2 apartments and bought our 1st house.  We’ve been through milestones and huge hurdles of faith together. We’ve been through richer and poorer, sickness and health. I know there will be even more challenges to come, as 8 years is nothing compared to the beauty of those who successfully go before us, but I can honestly say as the years go by, marriage gets deeper in meaning and the joys and blessings are ones to never take for granted.  

I love you Perze.  Only God knows what is laid before us in the years to come, but I’ll be standing right there with you, jumping with you in joyous moments, and beside you on our knees through every season!  *note:  When I first read this poem, I remember crying because it was exactly how I love you. It has become our poem for us, so I continue to repost it every anniversary until we are old, gray, and toothless:

[i carry your heart with me]


i carry your heart with me(i carry it in
my heart)i am never without it(anywhere
i go you go,my dear;and whatever is done
by only me is your doing, my darling)
                                                      i fear
no fate(for you are my fate,my sweet)i want
no world(for beautiful you are my world,my true)
and it’s you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you
here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life;which grows
higher than soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that’s keeping the stars apart
i carry your heart(i carry it in my heart)
