Always and Forever

Today is our 5th wedding anniversary!

It's crazy how "5 years" doesn't seem to be an accurate time count at all. I feel like we've been moving through this "thing" together for thousands of years. Thousands of lives and lifetimes. Infinite versions, with infinite beginnings and infinite endings.

I can't wait to experience every single one of them together with my hubby! I'm so thankful that we continue to find each other.

In honor of this special occasion, I asked our good friend, the ultimate mustache man Jim Croce, to sing our song for us today.

So here it is.

"A long time ago" by Jim Croce.

I love you!

Seems like such a long time ago,

I was walking on a lonely road.

Getting tired of dreaming alone,

like all the lonely people I had known.

Seems like such a long time ago,

there was no one who would share my song.

I was just a boy far from home,

but I became a man when you came along.

We spent the whole night talking.

You said you'd like to see the sun rise.

But in the gold of morning,

was nothing that I had not seen in your eyes.

I was so afraid to touch you,

thought you were too young, you know.

So I just watched you sleeping.

Then you woke and said to me,

The night is cold, it frightens me.

I could sleep so easy next to you.

Wasn't very long ago,

you said that you would like to share my road.

Then you started singing my song.

Spent so many nights a-waiting,

Lets not spend a moments wasting time,

because we have very far to go.

I will go if you will take me,

I have never had a lover.

I am young but I am so alone.

We spent the whole night talking.

But in the gold of morning....

(Sidenote: I've been reading extremely too much existential shit lately and so I am completely switching gears with a recommendation from Jason to read "The Adding Machine" by William Burroughs. Will update on that later.)
