Betrothed

Longing for the day
when morning’s sweet
embrace surrounds us-
the day, so cherished,
so far away,
when I hear your laughter
echo the roar of the ocean,
delighting the sun-
to be with you,
in the light of day,
no chattering box,
nor pending duties,
just you
and I,
under the clear blue sky,
through the passing of light
into the glory of night.

Paper is the traditional first wedding anniversary gift.
Many may think this is a monetary reflection. However, paper is so much more.

Paper is resilient
sturdy
forgiving
flexible.
The foundation
and keeper
of history.

Bringer of hope
peace
Love.
The chronologer of a great story.

So,
like the cherished book,
such is our marriage,
full of life,
with sorrows,
excitement,
joy,
hope.
most of all,
Strength.
Strong so that nothing,
Nothing
Can tear it apart.
