Certain my resolution is to die
How can I live without thee
Milton, Paradise Lost, Book IX, 907-8
And now the time has come for me to say farewell;
With a lingering kiss we say goodbye
Knowing this unspoken truth, that I leave for the final time.
Never again will I see you to bid a soft adieu
And as such I find my mortality now,
For I refuse to live without you.
Adam is incredibly naïve, but rather sweet, about the whole ‘my wife has doomed herself to die’ thing.
