Happy Anniversary on this day, to the man
I would marry yet again.
When asked to devote my book no doubt it would be
to the first love of my life, Scott-
who took an aching, bruised, and battered heart
and tenderly enveloped my spirit with care, love and
I’m certain it was demanding and at the least challenging
being a husband to me
filled with minute trust, hope and belief:
along with modest faith in the arrangement of holy matrimony.
But he persevered, and crawled
through the deep crevices and craters-
abraded the sharp and jagged edges and
collectively we ascended through the abyss.
I thank you, I praise you,
I adore you and I certainly love you!
