Being married to her is the greatest happiness a man could feel. I could never love anyone more. My only desire is to love her and provide for her.

She is my woman, and I want to be her man.

Why am I here and not there?

I am HERE because I have been THERE.

When I saw my cousin again,

I had walked all day,

my ankles swollen like my feet.

Her bright eyes made my journey worth it.
