“MiMi Mijares” (

“…love is stronger than death…” and I am still us.

When We Two Parted

When we two parted
In silence and tears,
Half broken-hearted
To sever for years,
Pale grew thy cheek and cold,
Colder thy kiss;
Truly that hour foretold
Sorrow to this.

The dew of the morning
Sunk chill on my brow –
It felt like the warning
Of what I feel now.
Thy vows are all broken
And light is thy fame:
I hear thy name spoken
And share in its shame.

They name thee before me,
A knell to mine ear;
A shudder comes o’er me –
Why wert thou so dear?
They know not I knew thee,
Who knew thee so well: –
Long, long shall I rue thee,
Too deeply to tell.

In secret we met –
In silence I grieve,
That thy heart could forget,
Thy spirit deceive.
If I should meet thee
After long years
How should I greet thee?
With silence and tears.

— Lord Byron

My Darling, Darling, days go by but time stands still. I go through the motions, always one blink away from tears, one breath away from screaming. I love you more and I miss you more each day. Please stand with me while I do my best to be ‘us’ – I am your backup and you are my backup. We promised, forever and beyond. Yours, yesterday, today and tomorrow, MiMi

“MiMi Mijares” (

There is music even in the beauty
And the silent note which cupid strikes,
Far sweeter than the sound of an instrument;
For there is a music wherever there is
A harmony, order, or proportion;
And thus far we may maintain
The music of the spheres.
— Sir Thomas Browne

Bruce, you are the music – still. You are loved.

Thank you for loving my dear friend Mimi Mijares. Mimi’s love is pure and everlasting and you touched her heart so thank you through eternity for the courage to “be real”.

My Precious Love, flowers for you have to be all colors of summer wild flowers decorating a hillside meadow, swaying in a gentle warm breeze in the glow of a spectacular sunset illuminating the Pacific beyond the Golden Gate Bridge. Forever & Beyond, MiMi
