Love 28
Be-longing
(prose and Elfje)

I read in the paper that after just a day after his wife passed,
the old gentleman died the very next day of a broken heart ~
It was said that he did not want to live without her…

Faithful
Couples; for
You I wish
A heaven of forever
Togetherness

You alone beat for
Me
