Today marks the five year anniversary that Michelle and I have been married. It is crazy to look back, 2 kids, 1 dog, many years of dating… back to when we first began as high school sweethearts! We have already experienced many different highs and lows and I know there are many more to follow. But there is nobody else I’d rather live the journey with! I love you Michelle!
Here is a poem called “Together” that Ludwig Lewisohn wrote that I dedicate to my bride today:
“You and I by this lamp with these few books shut out the world. Our knees touch almost in this little space. But I am glad. I see your face. The silences are long, but each Hears the other without speech. And in this simple scene there is The essence of all subtleties, the freedom from all fret and smart, The one sure sabbath of the heart.
The world–we cannot conquer it, nor change the minds of fools one whit. Here, here alone do we create Beauty and peace inviolate; Here night by night and hour by hour we build a high impregnable tower whence may shine, now and again, A light to light the feet of men when they see the rays thereof: And this is marriage, this is love.”
Ludwig Lewisohn, Together
