Yet here we are

If we had asked respectable people we wouldn't be here,



If we had observed custom, we wouldn't be here,
If we hadn't been lucky, we wouldn't be here,
If we hadn't each taken the bait of love, we wouldn't be here,
















If we could have forgotten our pasts, we wouldn't be here,





If we had wanted something reasonable, we wouldn't be here,
If we hadn't needed more than we could ever express, we wouldn't be here,














If "yes" had not been the subtext of our storyline, we would not be here.


If, even as we crossed boundaries, we had not each been trying to find home, we would not be here.




Yet here we are.

Hey, what's with the respectable people line, Beth?? I seem to remember somebody asking me something about something. I'm glad I gave the right answer. Continued best wishes and all the luck that hard work and love can invite to your table.
