August 29th

Our union is like this:
You feel cold so I reach for a blanket to cover
our shivering feet.
A hunger comes into your body
so I run to my garden and start digging potatoes.
You asked for a few words of comfort and guidance and
I quickly kneel by your side offering you
a whole book as a
gift.
You ache with loneliness one night so much
you weep, and I say
here is a rope, tie it around me,
I will be your
companion
for life.

You were my first thought as my brain started connecting this morning, before opening my eyes.
Happy Day to you, one of the most wonderful examples of what a couple should be.

I would be nothing without you. I am everything with you. I could not be happier than to just be with you.
