We are so grateful…

Alaris Gratitude Corner

“We are so grateful to Jon and the Alaris team for participating in our wedding and helping us buy a new home. We could not be happier.” – Jerah and Halley Cameron.

At their wedding, Jon read the following poem.

“I do not love you as if you were a salt-rose, or topaz, or the arrows of carnations the fire shoots off.
I love you as certain dark things are to be loved, in secret, between the shadow and the soul.

I love you as the plant that never blooms, but carries in itself the light of hidden flowers; thanks to your love a certain solid fragrance, risen from the earth, lives darkly in my body.

I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where.
I love you straightforwardly, without complexities or pride;
So I love you because I know no other way than this;
Where I does not exist, nor you,
So close that your hand on my chest is my hand, so close that your eyes close as I fall sleep.”
