John came home after school with lilies in hand and an anniversary gift. He said, "I've written you a poem. Do you want to read it or do you want me to read it for you?" Of course I opted for him to read it. "It's meant to be funny but It also might make you cry." He sure knows me, I cry a lot and this was no exception.
"Of the 5 years we've complied.
There are two things which make me smile.
1st being the children you've baked.
2nd of course the music we make.
So, here's to 60 more together.
Full of songs that last beyond forever."
I looked at him with tear brimmed eyes and lept up to wrap my arms around him. "I love it!!" Then he handed me a leather sketchbook and a beautiful pen for us to write our songs in.
Since yesterday I've already written one song and I can't wait to fill it up with more.
