Roses from my Love

In addition to my (very unexpected) red dress, Tom also gave me a little sterling silver necklace and earring set set to commemorate our 10th anniversary, and if I wasn't stunned enough by this out-of-character shopping spree from my lovable (but fashionably clueless) husband, he brought me a bouqet of ten roses! By then I was officially swept off my feet.

Sonnet 116

Let me not to the marriage of true minds

 Admit impediments. Love is not love

Which alters when it alteration finds,

 Or bends with the remover to remove:

O no! it is an ever-fixed mark

 That looks on tempests and is never shaken;

It is the star to every wandering bark,

 Whose worth's unknown, although his height be taken.

Love's not Time's fool, though rosy lips and cheeks

 Within his bending sickle's compass come:

Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks,

 But bears it out even to the edge of doom.

If this be error and upon me proved,

 I never writ, nor no man ever loved.

    William Shakespeare 

    (1564 - 1616)
