With the beginning of the New Year I would like to reaffirm something I told CJ back in July of 2004. It was at the height of our reconciliation and means no less now that we have had our first year living together since 1986.
Until my ashes are scattered in San Francisco Bay to be reborn, join your spirit again, and love you anew. I want you to know that:
I will nurture your health I will encourage you on your path I will keep you young I will remind you who you are and who we are.
In sadness, I will help you remember
In happiness, I'll be there to make memories with you
When you need someone to encourage you, I want it to be me.
When you need a helping hand, I want it to be mine.
When you long for someone to smile at, turn to me.
When you have something to share, share it with me.
We have already been through a lot together, I believe the universe has been preparing us for this moment and for what the future will bring us, together.
I will keep the good memories alive and let the bad ones die.
I will not let the sun go down on our anger.
I will treat each morning as a new day to love the gift I've been given...you.
I will look forward to more hopes and dreams and accomplishing them with the greater
force of 'us'.
I will not forsake you, I will keep the fire burning and will always hold your spark dear.
This is the pledge I make before the universe.
