I finally got it, and it's perfect! -

Yes! I finally was able to make the trip into the city, and I got what I've been waiting for. Today I bought Jon's birthday present. He'll be turning 20 on July 2nd, and I wanted to get him something special.
Now, my love has always had a huge fascination for pocketwatches. He's always wanted one of his own but he never got one. So, I got him a silver pocketwatch and I had it engraved. I picked out the one with a photo protector, so I was able to put a small picture of us inside, protected by glass. I edited the picture to be black and white to compliment the watch.
So here's the final product, though the engraving is a little hard to see with my camera. The front of the watch says "Time is love." That's the title of our special song, and I thought it fit perfectly. The back has his initials, J.A.K. And finally the box cover; that was a tricky one, I had no idea what to get engraved on this. Then I remembered the argument we have every single day, over which one of us loves the other more. (Cheesy I know. ) So I had them engrave the words "I love you more." What do you guys think? I put a lot of thought (and money! ) into the gift. Is it good?
Though you may sleep through half the day,
I know I'm in your heart even as you snore away.
I love my big sleepy bear.
