Do You Remember
For my wife. 16 years later and still madly in love. Do you rememberthe day we met?Quiet and shyyou stared atyour feet. Do you recollectall the firsts?The smile, the winkthe touch of our hands,the first kiss? Walking by the lakenot close, but not farapart,wonderingwhat was happening? Can you recallour first intimateconversation?Was it thenwe fell in love? People talkedpeople stared.The shaking of heads,the clacking of tongues,few approved. But we didn't carewhat they thought.The warnings camebut amidst it allwe persevered. We finally said I do.And we did everythingthat we promisedas we also continueto do.
