“Cause all of me
Loves all of you
Love your curves and all your edges
All your perfect imperfections
Give your all to me
I’ll give my all to you
You’re my end and my beginning
Even when I lose I’m winning
Cause I give you all of me
And you give me all of you,”
GAD, TOBY / LEGEND, JOHN
I heard this fragment of a song for the first time at the weekend, and again on Monday. I love it. I had to look up the full lyrics.
It describes to me exactly how I feel about the love of my life.
I have been married for 31 and ½ years. I have loved my husband for 34 years. We have argued, we have made up, we have disagreed, we have compromised, we have known loss, we have known great joy, we have moved house (more than once, with another in the offing), we have watched our sons grow up, leave home, and one set up a home of his own.
We have good friends, we have a fortunate life.
Never have the words we spoke at our wedding meant more to me. For Better, For Worse, For Richer, For Poorer, In Sickness and in Health, to love and to cherish, til death us do part.
But the best bit of all?
We have each other.
