almost forty years


here we are

remember that day in the park?
i was 19 and you 23
we spoke of "someday"
we made plans

your voice was like warm bread
with butter and honey
i loved to hear you say my name
you sang about the baby rabbit
you made a promise
do you remember?

you told me
"you will never be sorry"
it was scary
the hardest thing i had ever done
but i believed

and you kept your promise

Congratulations! Hello, friend. I wanted to stop by and thank you for being a part of my blog in 2013. You have been a blessing to me. For the coming year, I have a few wishes for you.

May 2014 bring you much joy.
May we all have peace in our homes,
laughter by our firesides,
time spent with family,
and contentment in our hearts.
Be well, my friend.
