ABC Wednesday-L for Love

Today was the final farewell to Mrs Lee Kuan Yew. She is a lady who is undoubtedly the Mother of our young nation, having stood by the country through thick and thin…And the most impressed me is their love.

MM Lee and Mrs Lee are well-known to be a very loving couple.

There are so many famous people in this world, from eastern country to western country, who had a marriage like theirs? Their marriage is made in heaven, they have gone through 60 over years together in life, I hope we will all have lovely and great marriages like that too.

In memory of their true love, here’s Shakespeare’s Sonnet 116, as my final farewell to Mrs Lee.

Let me not to the marriage of true minds
Admit impediments. Love is not love
Which alters when it alteration finds,
Or bends with the remover to remove:

O no! it is an ever-fixed mark
That looks on tempests and is never shaken;
It is the star to every wandering bark,
Whose worth's unknown, although his height be taken.

Love's not Time's fool, though rosy lips and cheeks
Within his bending sickle's compass come:
Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks,
But bears it out even to the edge of doom.

If this be error and upon me proved,
I never writ, nor no man ever loved.

She must be a neat lady; doesn't get much press in the US.
