The sins of the mother, come down to her son, But how long should we blame her for what he’s become? One year of marriage – a journey together, That year during which we learn more about each other.

Real Conversations

She wants to know when they’re happy but not when they’re sad, When they’re laughing out loud, but not when they’re mad.
