Passing Years

Good morning, dear reader. The prompt for day 29 of #OctPoWriMo is love and relationships. We were given a pretty broad field to play in, and I chose the one that comes naturally to me. My poem today is for my dear wife, my best friend. The line in this poem that is my favorite is 'If not for you, there is no me'.  What is your favorite?

The years are passing by.


Without fail, we watch
a timeless passage into
tomorrow.


Daily I pray for
our love to remain
strong.


Without fail, we make
mistakes, causing hurt
grief
sorrow.


We forgive.
We forget.


Time moves on,
and we grow
together.
Passion does not fade,
our own brand of romance
keeps our hearts warm.


Without fail, I realize
the truth.
If not for you,
there is no me.


All that I am
is for you,
because of you.


The years are passing by,
and we are watching
their passage.


Hand in hand,
in love.
Together forever.

    1. Thanks, Payal! I agree...if we couldn't forgive and forget, our relationships would be so much more difficult and tumultuous.
