Poem: My Love
To Charles, on our 45th. anniversary!
These years we’ve been together,
down this road of life…
through calm or stormy weather…
through the pain and strife…
through the happiest of seasons that, so, out weigh the rest…
sharing what we’ve treasured…time has been our test!
Both learning, as time passes, the craft of compromise…
how, overtime, things change a bit, may take us by surprise.
Sometimes change feels threatening, seems like the winter’s wind
that howls in it’s persistence, impatient to come in.
Changes are just ripples, can’t touch us, you must know,
or break the bond, created, all those years ago.
Our 12th. Anniversary in 1973
