If ever two were one, then surely we. If ever man were lov'd by wife, then thee. If ever wife was happy in a man, Compare with me, ye women, if you can. I prize thy love more than whole Mines of gold Or all the riches that the East doth hold. My love is such that Rivers cannot quench, Nor ought but love from thee give recompetence. Thy love is such I can no way repay. The heavens reward thee manifold, I pray. Then while we live, in love let's so persever That when we live no more, we may live ever. By Anne Bradstreet (c.1612-1672)
Happy 29th Birthday my love!
I thank God every day that you were born. And I'm so glad that I get the chance to celebrate your birthday with you. I hope your 29th year is the best one yet!
