Two years ago last Friday, ybunny
proposed to me.
In 36 days, he'll marry me.
We'll be together for three weeks during the wedding and honeymoon. This is a long stretch. We've not had very much time together during the last year.
One of my favorite poems reminds me of us:The Starred Coverlet
A difficult achievement for true lovers
Is to lie mute, without embrace or kiss,
Without a rustle or a smothered sigh,
Basking each in the other's glory.
Let us not undervalue lips or arms
As reassurances of constancy,
Or speech as necessary communication
When troubled heart go groping through the dusk;Yet lovers who have leaned this last refinement -
To lie apart, yet sleep and dream together
Motionless under their starred coverlet -
Crown love with wreaths of myrtle. Robert Graves
