Lovely Lady, standing by me, Celebrating, for all to see. We met each other when life was a fray. Open to commit, being unafraid. Kind and caring, living with intent. Creative, loyal, even tolerant. Please let us join; be more than one. Awaken together with the rising sun. My vow, my gift; my soul without fear. Together we will conquer our remaining years.
I read this poem yesterday at a lovely little ceremony. It was on a knoll overlooking the Deschutes River. Small affair, given the times. An officiant, a couple of friends and a couple in love.
Yes, I got married.
I guess there is some catching up to do.
