Daily missive for Friday the 1st of August.~by Peter Forster



Daily missive for Friday the 1st of August.

Silver Wedding day.

A glance to remember.
A turn of the head
Was all it took,
The image imprinted
On my heart.
Over laid, as it has been
By the passage of time,
With its share of good and bad fortune.
Complications of life
With implications
That can destroy the best of intentions
If you let them.

Never the less,
Whenever the strain
Of living threatened
To tear at the bonds
That tied us,
And the cut and thrust
Of life
Became an unequal fight,
The love we share
Has proved to strong
To be broken.

Through all
Life has thrown at us
We have prevailed.
On days such as this,
My mind turns back
To that day
Twenty Five years ago,
When I saw you
Walking toward me
Down the aisle,
My heart thumping
So loudly
The sound filling my ears,
My eyes clouding over
With unshed tears,
I am right back there,
Ready to do it all again,
With you,
My darling wife.
Lover and partner,
For life.
