Anniversary

           

                   I always come home to you,

Your smile, your arms, your lips.

Strong as the anchors of a ship,

Tethering my wandering, wondering heart.
There is a safety in our past,

Landmarks of history,

Reminding me why I’m here

A testimony to our togetherness,

My life with you.
Alone right now I chart my path,

Traveling far–

Not in circles, but meteoric spurts

Up and out, fierce bursts of energy,

then a quiet return.

Always back again to you.

My husband and I celebrated our 39th anniversary on Bastille Day–July 14th.  When you’re married that long sometimes you need to get away and have your own space.  I wrote this during one of those away times.  He is so worth coming back to–a real gift to me from God.

Sharing this poem with dVerse Pub’s Open Link Night  Anniversary Celebration. 
Woohoo!  Check in there for other great poetry.
Also with the Soli Deo Gloria Community. Blessings there abound!
