When our eyes meet, love still lingers...
a love that has navigated its way
to this very moment. The breath of a
gentle summer breeze carried us
over hills seemingly too huge to bear.
Stunning, good-night hues painted
our evenings, and golden shades
offered morning greetings.
With fingers laced, our connection,
now deeper than that first kiss,
and as sweet
as the taste of buttercream frosting.
And so, our dance continues,
for it is written in the clouds,
over the horizon,
within the glorious shades of the future.

Hi Lauren, happy anniversary. You are one of the most romantic people I know and its wonderful.

Happy anniversary! What a sweet poem; I so love the contrast of the title with the memories and imagery within the writing. ❤

I love the love that is transpiring in this lovely poem Lauren!
I am fond of these stories of love that last.
Happy Anniversary to both of you ❤❤
Aww, thank you, Marie, for your beautiful words and wishes. I have known people who divorced after three decades, and I know people who are still married but unhappily after a long time. So, we feel lucky and blessed, although life has challenged us in areas out of our control. But we hold each other up and revel in the joys and our love that has remained loyal. 🙂 Hugs, my friend. xo

Oh this is so delicious and your words are just so heartfelt Lauren. It reminds me of my daughter’s wedding and the love that emanates through them. You can just feel it, like I do your words here! 💗
You are more than welcome, Lauren!
I was expecting a recipe, but what a pleasant surprise to read this beautiful poem.
I didn’t even think of that, but how logical! And I do have one that is used for my carrot-birthday cake each year. But that’s beside the point. 🙂 Thanks, Anneli! 🥰
You are gifted with words
Thanks very much, Ian. Your kind words are appreciated.

Happy Anniversary, Lauren! I enjoy looking back and where we are today, as a couple, on our anniversary too. Wishing you many more years of happiness and sweetness!

You are most welcome dear Lauren. You too have a great weekend. Lots of love and hugs 🤗❤️🤗❤️
You had me at buttercream. . .
Haha, Binky! Thanks for the laugh! Who doesn’t like buttercream? 🙂
How sweet (pardon the pun)! Lol. Happy Anniversary, Lauren. What a joy to celebrate the taste of lasting love. A beautiful poem, my friend. I hope your day is extra special. ❤ ❤ ❤
I love the pun, Diana! Thanks for your wishes and lovely words about the poem. Our anniversary was on the 21st and we enjoyed it locally this year, spending time in the outdoors (my prior post) :). Our weather has been gorgeous with cool temps and sunny skies, so until the rain comes again, it’s nice to take advantage. Have a great weekend also! 🥰💞
Sunny skies and cool temps sounds ideal. 🙂 I’m glad you had a beautiful day, and I know nature is where you two feel at home. ❤
This is so sweet, I hope one day my boyfriend and I get married. This post made me smile. :,)
