Again (always) yes

A long (short) time ago

Before careers, so stressful

Before home ownership

(endless renovations)

Before the passing of loved ones

Before Peanut

(did we ever understand how deeply we can love?)

There was a night

Planned for weeks

And a dinner

Glasses of wine on the beach

You so nervous

(so very nervous)

A question asked

And answered

Yes

One year later

Friends and family looking on

(bearing witness)

I do

Time passes

Five years

So fast (slow)

Again (always) yes.

Wow. So few of us bloggers do poetry well. Most of us copy out poetry from our teen diaries. This is a beautiful tribute to a marriage. Congrats on the fifth!
