Love Of Mine

I Will Follow You Into The Dark - Death Cab For Cutie

Love of mine,

Someday you will die - it's really best if you just accept that now. This is not a fight you can win; why not direct your energy toward more productive ends?

Paint, write, sing. Create something beautiful that will last forever.

Or you can carry on with your fruitless struggle. Cake the hands of time with age-defying makeup - but they will still tick ever onward. Slice out the numbers on the clock and rearrange them in a more pleasing formation - the great time keeper will still know the time.

Growing old can be gorgeous, but your rejection is making it ugly. Dye your traitorous grey hairs, but I will not hide mine. Smooth away those wicked wrinkles, but I will embrace mine.

I hope that one day you will come to accept both your age and mine.

Until then, I hope the pool boy makes you happy - right up to the moment he leaves you for a younger woman.

Your Devoted Husband Always,

The End
