To My Husband On Our Anniversary

dusk

 

To my husband of 16 years,

The man who took a chance

On saying hi

At Sunrise Hall

To the girl moving in

To Room 314

We were both teenagers

You and I

Designer

Photographer

Hard worker

Dreamer

You drove me to church

In your CRX

The fast car

With the loud speakers

And sunroof open

Along A1A

You proposed

In a suit

Our toes in the sand

Ocean winds

On our skin

In the clear night sky

A barge

Anchored offshore

I said, “yes”

One simple word

Transformed us both

Now we’re thirty somethings

You and I

Father

Mother

Provider

Dreamer

We have grown up

Together

Learning

These marriage vows

Being like-minded

Having the same love

Being one

In spirit

And purpose

In humility

Putting others first

You are better

Than I

But not proud

Or arrogant

You teach me

Grace

And Love

How to say I’m sorry

And how to forgive

To laugh

To have courage

To drive a jet ski

To go after dreams

To believe the best

In a person

You are

My hero

My Mitch

My love

Who

Still drives

A fast car

With sunroof open

Along A1A

I am yours

Always
