Respecting the Elegance


We were married with such fine China and silver, My Love

and over the years battles raged outside, nearly

costing us our souls, and yet here we are

still carving, still etching the stone

tablets of our history.


Respecting the words we said so many years ago,

and the elegance of our love,

covered in lace.

  1. There’s a delicate joy in this poem. There’s a sweet taste of love that your post has left behind. Thank you for this wonderful post!
    Also, this reminds me of the song Remember When by Alan Jackson. I don’t know if you’ve heard it. It’s beautiful and simple, just like your post.

    1. Thank you Mary! I really appreciate your comments and blessings to us. Our anniversary is coming up soon, so I often think about it. We don’t share the exact date though on the internet. Peace to you!
