Another First Date

“Grow old along with me! The best is yet to be…” ~ Robert Browning (on a sundial my Piano Man gave me for our first anniversary)


I
love you more,
we say, year after year…
tasting truth
in each other’s mouths.


another first kiss on Silver Lake Park, where we shared our first kiss
 
my Piano Man and I proposed to each other under this crabapple tree. The tag in the picture is new—I’ve no idea what it means for the tree… But since 13 and 31 (especially together) are my favorite numbers, it must be a good omen for me
 
the painting on the background is a handfasting present from Magic Love Crow

  11. Awww So sweet, you could write me one like this every day. For a while but not lately, I made it an effort to every day after a kiss to ask her if she marry me. Blushing her cute bit, then I'd ask if she would renew our vows with me. She never says yes to that, her reply is that she hadn't done anything wrong that needd fixing. Weve been married 46 years.
    (I don't know you well enough but I'm thinking this is a fantasy poem, not the real you and Lover. If true, Happy Anniversary!!)

    1. Actually, Jim, this is the truth all the way. We are one of the quirkiest couple ever. And we honestly continue to propose marriage to each other at least thrice a week. And the kissing has never stopped...
