To My Beloved Husband

If ever two were one, then surely we.
If ever man were loved by wife, then thee.
If ever wife was happy in a man,
compare with me, you women, if you can.
I prize thy love more than whole mines of gold.
Or all the riches that the East doth hold. 
My love is such that rivers cannot quench,
nor ought but love from thee give recompetence.
Thy love is such I can no way repay...
The heavens reward thee manifold, I pray. 

Then while we live, in love let us so persever
That when we live no more, we may live ever.  

~Anna Bradstreet~ 

With Love Jasmina & Jimmy
