Ode to Rob.............


On Thursday, August 31st we will be married four years. Doesn't seem possible....................

thinking back to the weekend that we met........

you were concerned that I would notice what was wrong with you
(that you were slight of height)
I was too busy noticing that your smile was melting my heart
that your eyes were pulling me into your very soul
and that your heart was so pure.

I was concerned that you would see my emotional scars
(my back was breaking from all the baggage upon it)
you noticed my laughter
my shyness
that I had not been kissed or held for a very long time.

Once we felt safe
we chatted and laughed
I heard words coming out of my mouth
They formed in my heart and not my brain,
They terrified me
You told me to relax and I did.

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY TO THE PERSON WHO I ENTRUSTED WITH MY HEART.
