The Nightingale by Julee Cruise, for Aaron

For Aaron:

the nightingale
it said to me
there is a love
meant for me

the nightingale
it flew to me
and told me
that it found my love

he said one day
i'll meet you
our hearts will fly
with the nightingale

the nightingale
he told me
one day
you will be with me

the nightingale
said he knew
that your love
would find my love one day

my heart flies
with the nightingale
through the night
all across the world

i long to see you
to touch you
to love you
forever more


Well Aaron, we've made it through nine years of marriage, and over a decade of being a couple. There have been some rough spots, it's true. But the good has far outweighed the bad. And I can honestly say, I'm glad that I've gone through the good and the bad with you.

I keep writing things---how I hope we're sitting on the porch together for many more years, how I can't imagine life without you, etc. Yet it all seems so trite. I can't seem to express it all.

I know how fortunate I am to have you as my husband, Aaron. We mesh. I'm impulsive. You're thoughtful. I'm stingy. You're generous. I'm emotional. You're logical. I'm a girl. You're a boy. :) Yeah yeah, couldn't let it get too mushy in this public place, ya know!

I love you. Happy anniversary.
