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.
