Twenty Years

image

Twenty years ago, on this day, in a very small civil ceremony, the Lovely Melis and I joined our lives together legally.

I gave the Lovely Melis my heart a number of years prior to that day, and I am thankful for the gift of her heart in return.

Our lives together have not been untroubled, but these words, which I first put down here eight years ago, still ring true.

I will not state we are soul mates, because we are not.  I will not state that I need the Lovely Melis, because I do not.  What I will state is that the Lovely Melis is an individual whose company I thoroughly enjoy, whose appeal to my senses is still sharp, whose respect I continue to strive for, and whose beauty continues to blossom like a well cellared bottle of red wine.

Happy Anniversary, Melis.  You are my love.

  3. Congrats! And at least 20 more! We’re coming up on our 29th in Feb. Perspective looks different when you see at it from the other end.
