...rejoice in the wife of your youth... be intoxicated always in her love.Yes, it is true... I am deeply and madly in love with my wife.
I know that there are many out there who will have stopped reading after that first sentence but that's ok... I am a romantic and that's just the way it is. But, for those of you who care (and have read this far) on the 22nd of this month Britany and I celebrated 13 years of marriage (good thing I don't believe in luck) to our best friends... each other in case you hadn't guessed. I won't lie to you... it hasn't always been easy... nor has it always been full of passion... but it has been love. Real love. The kind that weathers storms. The kind that carries you when you are hurting. That bears burdens. That changes you... on the inside.
Recently I wrote a Mothers Day poem for my bride while she was away at a womens retreat. It seems to fit well here as I celebrate the bride of my youth and 13 amazing years of marriage.
...this is for you babe.
For my wife…
For my wife, my lover and my friend this little poem I pen
to let you know how much you mean to me, to us and then
to bless you as you are away on this latest mothers day
I think you’ll find the five of us have a lot to say!
First let me say how much your missed by this time I am sure
There is so much your hugs and cuddles can only truly cure
Oh there’s dishes, diapers (and cereal) round every little bend
But truly it is only you whose love our hearts can mend
Your mother’s hand, your careful touch is very quickly missed
But we will make due through the days until our cheeks are kissed
By your beautiful lips and wondrous eyes and smile (that’s all my own)
And soon you’ll be here back with us together in our home
We bless you mum for all you do and all you say and pray
We bless you for the heart you bring the kind words you always say
We bless you love for believing things that are deep and wide and true
We bless you for the way you stand and always see us through
So from Duncan, Celtin, McKenzie Grace and Hallie Taylor too
We offer up our deep hearts love and say that we love you!
