Three years together! And yet how much more
Our love has grown, and blossomed, and matured,
Restoring what commitment can restore
In a world where nothing is assured.
Choices are the children of our needs,
Hard put to long survive on grit alone.
As the time we made our choice recedes,
Roots reach into soil that once was stone.
Days turn into months, and months to years.
A moment is the handiwork of time.
Now is sculpted by past joys and tears,
Defined by love in ways we can't define.
Passions come and go; love remains,
A choice that wisdom proves and need sustains,
Turning toil to dance and truth to wine.
