FMF: Anniversary

Come enjoy this beautiful poem – FMF – ANNIVERSARY

The Abundant Heart

couple standing hand in hand on footbridge, looking lovingly at each other

Another year has come and gone
Another year of loving you
Another year of memories made
Another year to look ahead

Another year of loving you
More trust and oneness to pursue
And every day our vows renew

Another year of memories made
Of countless times together prayed
Ensuring that they will not fade

Another year to look ahead
To I-love-yous as yet unsaid
More precious than our daily bread

Today’s poem was written for the Five-Minute-Friday Link-up: ANNIVERSARY. This year my husband and I will celebrate our 24th wedding anniversary. The years have not all been easy; but then, everything worth having involves hard work.

To be honest, I am amazed at how much my husband and I have grown together. We truly do complement one another. We complete each other. And yes, he is my better half!

For you

Don’t Miss this moving and romantic poem – FOR YOU


You saved the letters I wrote

The rough prose and youthful hand an unfamiliar receptacle for familiar feelings

I found them in your dresser drawer

The one place truly yours in a life totally shared

I had never opened it

Not in all the years since we moved in together

Not through the highs and the lows of decades together

Not even those final hard years of sickness

I thought about keeping them

A memory of how I felt

The love that makes what I have to do the hardest thing I ever did

But I don’t need to

My love for you is the only thing still bright as the rest of me fades

I instead have decided to place them with you

In the casket

As you take your final rest

For those letters

Like my heart

Are for now and forever

For you
