We have weathered much together.
And I have watched you grow and change,
adopting characteristics I love
— a softening of the eyes & stomach —
and a few that, as you know,
have been harder to stomach.
And, I love you.
And each day I am finding new appreciation for small things…
A fresh gray hair,
The lines at the corner of my lips that will never leave,
And with all of these discoveries I am reminded
of our journey, and I feel a deepening
adoration of this landscape.
