Happy fourteenth anniversary!
A saddle on the mountain of your lives.
Pause a moment: The landscape that you see
Peacefully unfolds before your eyes.
Years stretch out like fields beneath blue skies.
For you, the way has turned out steep, but still
On the whole both beautiful and kind,
Ultimately wedded to your will,
Resistant though it might have been at times,
The sort of life which one is blessed to climb.
Every day might equally be such,
Embracing past and future in one view.
Nor would in that case this day mean as much:
The heart could, like an actor, use a cue,
Having lifelong feelings to renew.
