Happy Anniversary! Remember This?

1 comments

Twelve Years On
Our first beach trip.
It amazes me still that one unexpected message
One chance encounter, with no expectations
And, if I'm honest, not a lot of optimism either
Somehow turned into dozes of other trips
And a house in the burbs with a couple of cats
And secret recipes only we know.
One leap of faith, because what else could it be?
Sudddenly, somehow, without any effort at all
Became twelve years of unconquerable happy
And counting.
Happy Anniversary, I love you!

Happy Anniversary! These Go To Eleven!

Eleven Years On
Eleven years
One dog
Four cats
Three grandchildren
Two nieces
One house
Three cars
A dozen elections
Two dozen concerts
All the homemade pizza and wings we could eat
And we're just getting started.
Happy Anniversary, I love you!

How long is that in relationship years?
Must be at least a hundred, right?
So how is it that it feels like it was just a few days ago, I was headed west to meet you?
Never knowing, never imagining
That ten years on I would be sitting here marveling
At how very right this all turned out to be.
I'm not surprised anymore, but I am still amazed.
Happy Anniversary, I love you!

Nine Years On
Somewhere in the Wayback Machine
You'll find two people
Rubbing their chins and wondering
Is this going to be another bust?
Or is it the real deal?
Fortunately for us here in the present
For reasons only they could explain (or not)
Those two decided
That is was worth finding out what it would be
Without worrying too much about what it might be.
Guess we owe them one.
Happy Anniversary, I love you!
