Thank you for being you.

The birds fell silent

The flowers bowed their heads

The stars that had shone for an eternity

Turned towards the face of death

The air was still

Nothing moved

Except the beat of a fragile heart

The ground shuddered beneath my feet

As I stumbled into the dark

And when all was lost

I heard a voice

As gentle as the summer breeze

And there you were

Across the void

Reaching out to me

You touched my soul

With tender words

A caring loving heart

Pierced the storm

Stayed my course

Lifted me from my knees

10 years have passed since that day

Every year I owe to you

The stars are shining once again

The birds are singing

And the flowers bloom.


Je t'aime mon amour.

J'ai pensé que je devrais revisiter ce texte car il me procure le plus grand des sourires quand je le lis. Je me dis aussi qu'il y a sûrement des gens qui t'ont exprimer les mêmes mots : thank you for being you. C'est tellement joli... ça laisse un soupir dans le coeur, vraiment. Merci :)

A novel could not tell this story as beautifully.

Gentle, full of love and tenderness.
A beautiful testament to love and togetherness.
It makes my heart sing.
