“The first time his laughter touched the air around me, the earth sighed and the moon smiled, and I knew nothing would ever be the same again. I held him in my mind, my body, my soul, like a whisper in the wind. Like a totem in my heart. He became the key to words I had never been able to speak and tears I had never been able to cry. I knew I would live the rest of my life with his love dancing in the spaces only we could see.”
