We sit and talk,
quietly, with long lapses of silence
and I am aware of the stream
that has no language, coursing
beneath the quiet heaven of
your eyes.

William Carlos Williams

(secretly adoring shyly
tiny winging darting floating
merry in the blossoming
always joyful selves are singing)

In love you loosened yourself like sea water:
I can scarcely measure the sky’s most spacious eyes
and I lean down to your mouth to kiss the earth.

I believe
in love at first sight
but I will always believe
that the people
we love
we have loved before.
Many, many, many times before, and when we stumble
through grace and circumstance
and that brilliant illusion of choice
to finally meet them again,
we feel it faster
each time through.

The one glance that set life alight
is two sets of two eyes
staring through the layers
of lifetimes and stolen glances
and first kisses and hands held;
the brace against the weight
and unrelenting tide
of waiting.

I believe
in love at first sight
but am not burdened with the misconception
that it’s a first sight
at all.

All was over in a moment. I had fulfilled my destiny. I was a captive and a slave.

There was no pausing on the brink; no looking down, or looking back; I was gone, headlong, before I had sense to say a word to her.

(such a sky and such a sun
i never knew and neither did you
and everybody never breathed
quite so many kinds of yes)

The moon turns its clockwork dream.
The biggest stars look at me with your eyes.
And as I love you, the pines in the wind
want to sing your name with their leaves of wire.

Pablo Neruda

I became aware of the world’s tenderness, the profound beneficence of all that surrounded me, the blissful bond between me and all of creation,

and I realized that the joy I sought in you was not only secreted within you, but breathed around me everywhere, in the speeding street sounds.

Vladimir Nabokov

You were what the wind was making with illuminated leaves.
Behind the nocturnal mountains, white lily of conflagration,
ah, I can say nothing!  You were made of everything.

When John sat across Nancy at Seattle’s Best Katipunan six years ago, he had to have known his life was about to change. Well, we all did, and what a joy and privilege it has been watching their love story unfold, from our own corner seat at SBC and the corridors of Malcolm Hall. Thank you Nancy and John for this wonderful journey through time. ♥ You are two of the nicest, sweetest people I know, and my goodness what a good-looking couple you make! Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Fajardo!

You do not know me (although you have seen me, smiled at me). I know you (although not so well as I would like. I want to be there when your eyes flutter open in the morning, and you see me, and you smile. Surely this would be paradise enough?). So I do declare myself to you now, with pen set to paper. I declare it again: I love you.”

Neil Gaiman

I’ve seen the waters that make your eyes shine. Now I’m shining too. If I didn’t know you I’d rather not know. If I couldn’t have you I’d rather be alone. I never knew just what it was about this old coffee shop I love so much. All of the while I never knew.

Falling In Love At A Coffee Shop, Landon Pigg

That’s why I love you and yet not why.
There are so many reasons, and yet so few,
for love has to be so,
involving and general,
particular and terrifying,
joyful and grieving,
flowering like the stars,
and measureless as a kiss.

Pablo Neruda

Heart, are you great enough
For a love that never tires?
Oh heart, are you great enough for love?

Marriage Morning, Alfred Tennyson

(i do not know what it is about you that closes and opens; only something in me understands the voice of your eyes is deeper than all roses)

e.e. cummings

 

Sounds of laughter shades of love are
Ringing through my open ears inciting and inviting me
Limitless undying love which shines around me like a
Million suns, and calls me on and on
Across the universe

John Lennon

We do not remember days; we remember moments.

Cesare Pavese

We gather up our hearts and go,
A Thousand Kisses Deep.

Leonard Cohen

Love is the slate under the chalk, the ground where buildings rise, and the oxygen in the air. It is the place you come back to, no matter where you’re headed.

Jodi Picoult

 

The truth about forever is that it is happening right now.

Sarah Dessen

 

Congratulations John and Nancy!!!
