My love, this is the date that my joy wed your delight.
In truth, your love waited with an overly tolerant breath,

Eager to forgive, willing to unlock your spirit and let me in.

I Love you more than any word could ever suggest its meaning.
My laughter has returned with a freedom that never escaped as fast.

Love, with its sweet breath, now soars in me through you.
Until this date arrived I was lost, be…

CHILD: “Why do you hate my blackened smile so much that you’d flatten it with the blunt instruments of your contempt?

CHILD: Why would you violently pull the teeth of my joy like a cruel dentist who loves his job to the same degree with which he abuses his chi…
