Today is my wedding anniversary. Here is this year’s poem:
How did I deserve to know?
How did I deserve to know
A girl that’s so good for my soul,
With wisdom, passion, kindness, love
That I am so unworthy of?
It’s such a joy to wipe your tears,
Discuss your thoughts, your hopes, your fears,
For these eventful, treasured years
That we have been as one.
So with His strength and with His heart
Until it’s our time to depart
We reinforce these bonds of love
That fit us better than a glove,
To face the world and all its whims,
To cleanse our hearts of all their sins
And teach our children to become
Strong enough to overcome
The storms that surely will one day
Sweep across their narrow way
To purify them to their core
As they prepare for evermore.
