45 years ago today,
two frightened children
and vowed
and trembled
wondering if we would have maybe
25 years together
because the future was uncertain

but we walked through that door
in an autumn sun
and began
just began

we grew up together
we shaped each other
we chipped
and pushed
and hammered
and threatened

and slowly over time
we somehow
became each other

and it came to be that there was
more laughter
than tears
more fun
than frustration
more sweetness
than anger

the future has lingered
it's the sapphire year now-
creeping up to the gold
to match the silver in our hair
