The 10th Of June

Thanks to Google, there were a lot of momentous events that happened on this date throughout history whether they are related to politics, warfare and even sporting events. There's so much that have happened on this date that's worth remembering.

There is however an event which is the most memorable, that is the event on the 10th of June 2005, the day that I married the most beautiful woman on the planet. It was 10 years ago to this date that I married my wife and it was the day that I don't need Google to remember.

To my wife, thanks for giving me three (any more coming soon ?) beautiful children. Thanks for being an ibu to Ian, Iris and Iman. Thanks also for being an ibu to Mimie. Last but not least, thanks for being you and besides the regular doa in my prayers, I dedicate this poem to you.

How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight
For the ends of being and ideal grace.
I love thee to the level of every day’s
Most quiet need, by sun and candle-light.
I love thee freely, as men strive for right.
I love thee purely, as they turn from praise.
I love thee with the passion put to use
In my old griefs, and with my childhood’s faith.
I love thee with a love I seemed to lose
With my lost saints. I love thee with the breath,
Smiles, tears, of all my life; and, if God choose,
I shall but love thee better after death.

Happy 10th Anniversary darling, on this day, today the 10th of June 2015 to you, to me and all of us!
