Sixteen Years

Dear Wise and Bearded One,

Sixteen years ago we began this work in progress we call a marriage, a partnership, a friendship, a life-long fling.  There are few hearts and flowers in this romance.  Tears and silences and reconciliations and laughter and joy and long talks deep into the night are the hard work of making a safe haven for each other and a home.

I still choose you.
