Anniversary’s Slender Thread

Author’s note: published on the 36th anniversary of when I met my husband

Written by Millie Jenny C.

Anniversaries pass by year after year
Sometimes it seems we joined hands only days ago

Others… a lifetime ago.

We’ve spent so much time together…
seems I’ve known you all my life.
Now our time together…

is not together all the time.

Gaps between time spent walking hand in hand…
distances between us in miles…

not in the love we feel.

Distances to travel to reconnect…

spend time together.

Stresses that occur from time to time…

in any relationship.

Let us remember always…
they are only minor stresses.
As time is stretched and reshaped…

as we grow together…
sometimes grow separately…
when we are apart.

But the connection, the tether, between us…
is there always… times together… times apart.
Love goes on along the slender thread
we started weaving nineteen years ago
and we will continue weaving… patching it when needed.
As the years and anniversaries…

pass into tomorrow.
