More than picket fences

and child-filled mini vans,

married life invigorates,

inspires and ignites.

Days spent pouring cups of love

as each other’s beverage.

Necessary absence brings

a form of melancholy.

Working through challenges

with passion and honesty,

overcoming obstacles

hand-in-hand together,

working with binding lives.

Hearts a part melding minds.
