Who’d have thought?
I still remember each laugh.
I still remember each tear…and why.
On the pier we laid, vulnerable, ignorant, surrounded by nature and the love we now raise our children in.
I knew then what I know now,
Your strength is envious.
Our lives are far from perfect.
Our beliefs stray from the norm.
Our love has been more than challenged.
You’re undying kindness and devotion,
Is humbling and heart-warming.
The mornings we laid dreaming of years from now,
In the place we’ll call home,
Returning back to nature,
The two of us.
The journey getting there will be ours, remarkable, painful, revealing…
You are my hero.
You are my best friend.
You are my children’s mother.
You are my wife.
You are…everything I wish I was…
