Seems like yesterday, but it was 16 years ago. We were married on an unusually sunny day in Seattle at St. James Cathedral. A few weeks prior to the wedding there was a fire in the church and there were some moments of worry, but the smoke damage was minor and they allowed the scheduled weddings to continue. So things went as they should and all that really mattered was that we were married. I married a keeper.
Here is a little poem I found in an antique book...
by Louise Bogan
Love me because I am lost;
Love me that I am undone.
This is brave, - no man has wished it,
Be strong to look on my heart
As others look on my face.
Love me - I tell you....
