Silent lights.

From Anita Diamant: “Romantic love is to married love as fireworks is to fireflies. Both light up the night and gladden the heart, but otherwise, they are as different as grasshoppers and ants; motorcycles and mini-vans; champagne and beer. Romance is like the Fourth of July; explosions, oohs and aahs, and bright colors. The finale leaves you thrilled, exhausted, your ears ringing. The fireflies of married love on the other hand punctuate the dark with silent lights. Their split-second beacons are always a golden surprise. You whisper in their presence and smile. And, they’ll be there tomorrow night, and next year too.  If only you remember to go looking for them.”
