We All Want The Same Thing

The simple act of walking the streets of Europe at dusk with the glow of lights inside the homes and apartments of families at the dinner table in animated conversation, showed me in the most memorable and powerful way that we all want the same thing: happy productive families in a secure home with a future before them.

Love over a lifetime has many colors. 

In the beginning, love is hot red and pink and black and white.

As we age, love turns to green and brown and blue
like a majestic tree with roots sunk deep,
reaching for the sky and stars.


Marriage Vows for a Lifetime

I love you.
I'm sorry.
Please forgive me.
I forgive you.


Old Man

Old man take a look at my life I'm a lot like you
I need someone to love me the whole day through
Ah, one look in my eyes and you can tell that's true
