Yesterday I told my husband about my first plan for our 10th Anniversary for five next months after he came back from work in the afternoon.  I want to do several special things. The first I told him I was going to publish a mini book.  It would be a poem anthology written by me and him.  This idea came up several months ago when I found several files that I have forgotten so long time.  They were 2 poems he wrote when we were still having a long distance relationship.

I asked him to write some more and finally he wrote it right away in the living room.  Then around five minutes, he came to the kitchen to meet me.  With holding a paper, he asked me to sit down on a chair and he started to read his poem:

Celebrating our engagement, Bali, September 2001
 Love In A Foreign Land

In Indonesia my heart was found
Finding love on foreign ground
In her heart I saw the flame
I saw the truth, the love, the gain

It doesn't matter the words she said
It doesn't matter, my fear I dread
Only love came through her words
And in this love, I know it sounds absurd

Don't be fast in judging me
She is my butterfly, my Southern sea
And in my heart, I open up
To find my Asian buttercup

So now I sit with love in the sand
And my butterfly is my love in hand

Celebrating our engagement, Kute beach, Bali, September 2001

He seemed holding his tears and I stood up and gave him a big hug.  We hugged each other in a while and the sweet and lovely words came from his mouth, "I love you with all of my heart, forever and ever." (*)
