REMEMBER me when I am gone away,
Gone far away into the silent land;
When you can no more hold me by the hand,
Nor I half turn to go, yet turning stay.
Remember me when no more day by day
You tell me of our future that you planned:
Only remember me; you understand
It will be late to counsel then or pray.
Yet if you should forget me for a while
And afterwards remember, do not grieve:
For if the darkness and corruption leave
A vestige of the thoughts that once I had,
Better by far you should forget and smile
Than that you should remember and be sad.
Preston Burke - Grey’s Anatomy
I could promise to hold you and to cherish you
I could promise to be there in sickness and health
I could say till death do us part
but I won’t .
Those vows are for optimistic couples
the ones full of hopes
And I do not stand here on my wedding day, optimistic or full of hope
I’m not optimist, I’m not hopeful.
I’m sure. I’m steady and I know.
I’m a heart man. I take them apart, put them together. I hold the m in my hands
I am a heart man.
So this I’m sure; you’re my partner, my lover, my very best friend.
My heart, my heart beats for you
and on this day the day of our wedding i promise you this;
I promise you to lay my hand on the palm of your hands
I promise you me
