A Moment To Breathe

A Moment To Breathe

Thirty two years ago we met after Church;

little did we know we we’d ever promise our word-

to love each other faithfully and hold each other close…

here we are today; Only God would ever know

that dinner and a movie would lead to so much more-

of finding out what love is; where no one’s keeping score.

I love your gentle smile and the way you look at me;

how time seems to stop when we begin to breathe….

I’m truly blessed to be your wife and you my faithful husband;

So many memories that we share…yet we’ve only just begun!

The Hunt Is On

Never a trophy
on a wall;
Your leather
is a tent
blanketing me,
never resting
from life’s elements..
Each muscle –
a hearty stew –
Forever sustains.
I’ve stretched you
so thin
for my own gain;
Each sacrifice
(Your soul for soles,
organs for elements,
Blood for our mistakes)
reminds me
of my shortcomings;
how I might be
more like you.
The animal within
now tamed
through Victory –
Do you long to hunt ?
