For Michael: We’ve Only Just Begun

Six months ago today, I married my very best friend and love of my life.

Mike and I have been in a long distance relationship for over seven years. We are deeply in love and committed to hanging on for as long as it takes to finally be together for good. Now that we are married, we’re a lot closer to that than we’ve ever been. The immigration process can be long and tedious, but considering everything we’ve already been through together, it’s a relatively minor bump in the road.

I love you, Michael, with all that I am and all that I have. I look forward to being with you again, and next time I won’t have to let you go after a few short weeks. We already have a beautiful, strong marriage that can withstand absolutely anything. And we’ve only just begun!

In celebration of our first six months as husband and wife, I dedicate this song to you, my Love:

We’ve only just begun to live
White lace and promises
A kiss for luck and we’re on our way
We’ve only just begun

Before the rising sun, we fly
So many roads to choose
We start out walking and learn to run
Yes, we’ve just begun

Sharing horizons that are new to us
Watching the signs along the way
Talking it over just the two of us
Working together day to day,

Together… Together…

And when the evening comes we smile
So much of life ahead
We’ll find a place where there’s room to grow
And yes, we’ve just begun
