Our last impression of her as she turned the corner was that smile, flung backward like a handful of flowers. Wallace Stegner, Crossing to Safety
Trying to make every parting a beautiful memory…
If ever two were one, then surely we.
If ever man were loved by wife, then thee;
If ever wife was happy in a man,
Compare with me, ye women, if you can.
I prize thy love more than whole mines of gold
Or all the riches that the East doth hold.
My love is such that rivers cannot quench,
Nor ought but love from thee, give recompense.
Thy love is such I can no way repay,
The heavens reward thee manifold, I pray.
Then while we live, in love let’s so persevere
That when we live no more, we may live ever.
from To My Dear And Loving Husband by Anne Bradstreet
You are adored still and forevermore….
There’s just no accounting for happiness,
or the way it turns up like a prodigal
who comes back to the dust at your feet
having squandered a fortune far away.
from Happiness by Jane Kenyon
Happiness turned up at every corner today. I know not why – but how wonderful!
Love can not fill the thickened lung with breath,
Nor clean the blood, nor set the fractured bone;
Yet many a man is making friends with death
Even as I speak, for lack of love alone.
from Love Is Not All by Edna St. Vincent Millay
Hold me, kiss me, love me…
Lie still, lie still my breaking heart;
My silent heart, lie still and break:
Life, and the world, and mine own self, are changed
For a dream’s sake.
by Christina Rossetti
Thinking of the days that will never be…
No trumpet sounds before him,
No silver bugles blow,
And skies are radiant o’er him,
And stars to light him glow.
from Winsome Womanhood by Margaret Sangster
I remember the intensity of your Prince Charming light.
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)
from i carry your heart with me by e. e. cummings
Some days I need all of you – in the flesh.
