Better to write for yourself and have no public, than to write for the public and have no self. Cyril Connolly (1903 - 1974)


Congratulations On Your Wedding Friend

A friend I've known for awhile got married two days ago. I didn't get to go. In fact we've never met in real life, but we've known each other and spoken pretty much every day for 4 or so years. However I'm happy and hopeful for her. I find myself praying that she'll have a loving and successful marriage. The opposite of mine exactly.

And while I'm happy for her, I'm crying for me.

Raising my glass to you friend. Let me read your life and keep hopeful.

A poem for you both:

I Promise - Dorothy R. Colgan

I promise to give you the best of myself
and to ask of you no more than you can give.
I promise to respect you as your own person
and to realize that your interests, desires and needs
are no less important than my own.
I promise to share with you my time and my attention
and to bring joy, strength and imagination to our relationship.
I promise to keep myself open to you,
to let you see through the window of my world
into my innermost fears and feelings, secrets and dreams.
I promise to grow along with you,
to be willing to face changes in order to keep
our relationship alive and exciting.
I promise to love you in good times and bad,
with all I have to give and all I feel inside
in the only way I know how,
completely and forever.

  1. Happy for your friend, but sad for you! It's nice you've become close even though you've never met and are able to share life experiences with one another. As for marriage... it's hard, lord knows my hubby and I have had our struggles. I hope things look up for you and that you're able to find a balance. ((hugs))

  2. I wish them a lifetime of happiness!
