How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight
For the ends of Being and ideal Grace.
I love thee to the level of every day's
Most quiet need, by sun and candlelight.
I love thee freely, as men strive for Right;
I love thee purely, as they turn from Praise.
I love thee with the passion put to use
In my old griefs, and with my childhood's faith.
I love thee with a love I seemed to lose
With my lost saints, I love thee with the breath,
Smiles, tears, of all my life! and, if God choose,
I shall but love thee better after death.
CHESTER ERIK KILLIAN ERIN SIERRA JELEN
13 DECEMBER (2010-2013)
We've been through four years together... It's been four years since we've been best friends and three years since I have made you the love of my life. Three years ago you gave me the benefit of the doubt and decided to give me a chance... I asked if you would.
You know everything about me, every little detail. Even with my flaws, you accept me as yours. You accept the title "Wifey" from me, along with every other embarrassing pet name, and you... probably love them all.
You are the Romano to my Italy, except you don't hate me. You may try to deny that. You usually do. But you can't. Not today. You have put up with my hugs and my overprotective slash possessive ways and you have come to accept my affections. You sometimes return them. Those moments are the highlight of my day.
I've been through the worst of times and I've kept my tears to myself. Not once have I bothered you with my problems and, yet, here you come... each and every day, you manage to bring a smile to my face and make me forget about all the bad things in life. I try to be cheerful for you. I try to make you smile. Always. But you, you don't even have to try with me.
For every door I hold open for you. For every water bottle and juice box I bring to school for you. For every time I tuck you in. For every bedtime kiss and every hug. It's because I don't want to lose you. Ever...
I love you, Erin Sierra Jelen, I love you with all my heart, mind, body and soul...
...And you know it.
You are the reason I believe in love and happy endings...
...Here's to our Happily Ever After, my Princess.
Thank you. For always being there for me in my times of need, even when you aren't aware of them... and aren't aware of the things you do for me.
Happy Anniversary, my love.
