union

It was the kind

that we fell into.

Subtle and sweet –

innocent and oblivious.

We walked hand in hand

never considering much more

but existing in a place of

perpetual union.

 

Years have waved before us

steady and smooth –

turbulent and tufted

at times.

We walked hand in hand

breathing, assuming, waiting

aware of our place in

perpetual union.

 

You’ve observed me come

into my own.

Providing a pulse that propels me- as

We walked hand in hand

trusting and hoping – but

always grounded in this

sacred union.

11 years.

The divine comfort your companionship brings – may I never wake up.

I am only beginning to understand the vows I made in front of hundreds of family, friends, my dear great uncle Bill, and God.

While I am humanly incapable of holding to them all, I am thankful that the God I stood before & serve will see me through.
I love you, Mattie.
