No relationship is perfect, ever. There are always some ways you have to bend, to compromise, to give something up in order to gain something greater…The love we have for each other is bigger than these small differences. And that’s the key. It’s like a big pie chart, and the love in a relationship has to be the biggest piece. Love can make up for a lot.
When my daughter was about seven years old, she asked me one day what I did at work. I told her I worked at the college — that my job was to teach people how to draw. She stared at me, incredulous, and said, “You mean they forget?”
The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman is seen in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides. True beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It’s the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she shows & the beauty of a woman only grows with passing years.
I said, ‘You are the beautiful, distress of mathematics.’
I said, ‘For you, I would peel the clouds open like new fruit.
And give you lightning and thunder as dowry.
I would make the sky shed all its stars like rain.
And I would clasp the constellations across your waist.
And I would make the heavens your cape.
And they would be pleased to cover you.
They would be pleased to cover you.
May I please cover you, please.
