Against the Odds

Through this, our Grand Adventure
You were there.
And, amazingly, you still are
Steadfast in the belief that
We’re going to make it.

I won’t say that it’s been easy.
Easy is a word we scoffed at
Right from the beginning.

There was the time when
things were said, and not said
and said with too many words
by too many people.

But in the end, those same people
now look forward to just listening.

There was the time when
we thought your future
hung in the balance of the now.
And it was early mornings, and late nights
and Saturdays and Sundays and Holidays

But we realize, with all those days spent,
Where are our glory days?

There was the time when
I broke your heart
So thoroughly, I wasn’t sure either one of us would mend,
Much less us.

But here were are.
And this is where poetry fails me,
because

all this talk of Suns and Moons and Stars
all this talk of deep oceans and wide seas
all this talk of hearts bursting and cup overfilling
can’t even begin to describe what we have.

And so, we move forward,
and I haven’t forgotten what I promised

To Love, to Cherish,
to Grow with you and
to have faith in our journey together
through all the changes that will come
And joyously, I share my life with you.
