Happy Eight years, you.

You and I, we married eight years ago.
I have a record of it here, on my web log.
Here, here is a poem written about the night we met.

It’s like my memento box is public.
Held sideways, here, without a lid.
Now everyone can see.

Here is the photo you took of me the first time you came to visit me.

We were such babies then.

Now we have these babies.

We didn’t know what changes this marriage would hold.
I didn’t know how interesting I would continue to find you.
You didn’t know what you were in for.

I’m so lucky to be yours.
I’m so lucky to watch the kind of spectacular father you’ve turned out to be.
Plus, you’re just smoking hot.

The stakes are different,
The commitment remains.

Here’s to eighty more.

    Congratulations & happy anniversary! I loved the last two lines of the poem, knowing what it is about.

    this is going to hurt.”
