Aaron Smith 📷 @theartguy

17 years ago today,
I said "I do."
Popular culture says I should have been nervous,
Ready to flee,
Afraid of the "ball and chain."
I was never so sure of anything,
I knew I wanted to spend the rest of my life with you.
For almost 16 years,
Through the sickness and the health,
(mostly sickness)
I never stopped feeling that way.
I never regretted my vow.
I wanted to spend the rest of my life with you.
Instead, you spent the rest of your life with me.
I miss you.

@theartguy Yes, this is ultimate solidarity. That shared doing and being...words are a barely useful travesty, but you do a damned good job of edging us ever closer to it. Thank you.

@theartguy Thank you for sharing the powerful poem of love, and loss. "I was never so sure of anything" resonates out here with me, Aaron
