Often, we were on different
through life’s vicissitudes
Vows were made
Five years to this day.
Please excuse my platitude:
But oh how the time has flown!
And our family has grown
From just me and you
To one, two, and soon
to be three
of you and me.
Life is quite amazing,
But our lives are hardly ever easy.
Yet through thick and thin,
to ride the undulations together
Lest we are ripped asunder and pulled under.
You and I are one with the other
For better or worse.
I hope and pray
That I help make it
More better than worse.
See, I’m trying
to make being a good husband and father a priority
struggling to balance all of life’s responsibilities.
Yearning for a bright future with boundless possibilities.
Please encourage me to make the most of each breath.
As we continuously discern the paths that lie ahead,
Let us not of the other grow weary.
I want our marriage to be
More like stellar nucleosynthesis
A source of energy that’s endless,
with each passing day.
Love that never fades away.
