My Kingdom for a Kiss


It’s never over, my kingdom for a kiss upon her shoulder
It’s never over, all my riches for her smiles when I slept so soft against her
It’s never over, all my blood for the sweetness of her laughter

—From “Lover, You Should Have Come Over” by Jeff Buckley

A big bouquet of flowers (above, Van Gogh’s Irises in a Vase, from 1890) to the amazing Annie, who celebrates her birthday today. I’d still give my kingdom for a kiss upon her shoulder, even if my whole world wasn’t already linked with hers. You bring more beauty to my life than any other artist, Baby. Love you, Sweetie.

Hi Bob,

Is this Annie the daughter of the man who hosted Van Gogh at this place ?
I guess that she was in love with him as he was with her, but they kind of "missed" each other ?

Kind regards,

José

Hi, Jose,

No, this is the Annie who is my wife and who is celebrating her birthday today.
