Treasure Wednesday

After the funeral yesterday, there was no doubt in my mind what I was going to post for Treasure Wednesday. Every moment I have with Adam is a treasure. Love is a treasure.
If Thou Must Love Me
by Elizabeth Barrett Browning
If thou must love me, let it be for nought
Except for love's sake only.
Do not say"I love her for her smile her look her way
Of speaking gently, for a trick of thought
That falls in well with mine, and certes brought
A sense of ease on such a day"
For these things in themselves, Beloved, may
Be changed, or change for thee, and love, so wrought,
May be unwrought so. Neither love me for
Thine own dear pity's wiping my cheek dry,
A creature might forget to weep, who bore
Thy comfort long, and lose thy love thereby!
But love me for love's sake, that evermore
Thou may'st love on, through love's eternity.

I remember that picture-wasn't that your engagement? Love it-sorry to hear about your friend.
