This time when he asked for her hand she answered yes. They had traveled a great distance to be with one another. Once, she sent back the letters he wrote leaving no return address. Their love lingered even while they were apart. He went searching for her, and found her alone in the endless desert. He promised her forever and was hers again.Their love, which was never really lost, is now found in a simple evening spent with each other at home. Each brief glance, every quiet embrace, plays like notes of their own song and is their story of forever. As the morning light slowly moves through their Brooklyn apartment, it’s warmth and softness is theirs. Their joy comes from this space and the time spent here, together. Maybe the promise of forever is actually quite simple. To live here now, with a gentle joy from something so effortless as the morning light. There’s deep history connecting them now, together in these moments, building their foundation. Their distance is now absent and their journey continues, with or without interruption, forever.
