Yesterday Path

25A poem! Yes, a poem! Twenty-five years married to the love of my life and I’ve never written her a poem? Shame on me. That good friends, changes today.

Maybe you can be of assistance. Maybe you can help me decide on the words. Maybe you can help me choose a poem. Possibly one of these…

Toros are red my love,

Tift85 is green,

I love you so much,

I have pains in my spleen.

Oh my… that’ll never do. Tift85 is hardly green in the winter. Maybe…

How do I love thee,

Let me count the ways,

I love you when you cook chili,

pork chops,

and fish,

and especially when you cook cubed steak and a hamburger helper dish.

I really do love these dishes, but are these hardly words worth demonstrating my love on our 25th wedding anniversary?

Come on folks… little help here!

Maybe something a little less orthodox to the genre of poetry. I do see some of you writing like this and people do seem to “like” it. How about…

Yesterday…  I found you; you found my tail. Our parched paths crossed and became an amazing trail.

I found you napping on the girth of a gentle white-face;  painted with boots and denim, I longed to embrace.

On a wintry day our paths became one. A single path with  of course Bud, Scrappy, Crazy, and Blue… each one in turn eating their share too.

Remember the river? In the river and from the river news came. Joy of an added path brought forth a child with no name.

A dwelling place we purchased and a home was framed but someone else was building, He would soon lay His claim.

A path well traversed, tested yet unmoved. Winds and rain, and a bit of rock stew.

The path we have traveled has surely offered its briers. But hand in hand, heart in heart, our love never tired.

Yesterday? It became today. 

The path is now silver with hints of gray… my all those great times we had in the hay.

To my wonderful wife on our silver wedding anniversary. Twenty-five years? We’ve only just begun. I love you Weezie!

      Oh ho ho… 🙂 methinks we detect a little funning. Think I’ll refrain from this genre and leave it to the talented. Thanks good friend and many blessings.

    Congratulations on 25 years and counting!

  6. Happy Anniversary –
    Saying less is always saying MORE and the Bible does it best – How about:
    Philippians 1:7 It is right for me to feel this way about you all, because I hold you in my heart

    Be true to yourself Cyrano de Bergerac…the fair Roxanne will be moved by the wordsmithing of your heart…any of us who think we could provide silver words of embellishment, would only be inarticulate “Christian de Neuvillette”s…you have already won the fair maiden’s heart and soul…methinks you have her ear also. Congratulations and Blessings…and Smiles…

      It is truly good to hear your encouraging words dear friend. Trusting wellness is in the air… even if a bit gingerly. Prayers of thanksgiving to our healing Heavenly Father. …and smiles! 🙂
