where creative minds can interact

Many couples have a song

One that they feel describes their relationship

We never bothered to find one that suits us

Upon reflecting on that now

I realize there isn’t one yet made

There are countless love songs

Many that are beautifully written

But none that we both relate to

One that we both feel describes what we have

Perhaps then we must create our own

What we share is so wondrous

It’s beyond words

I shall try though to convey our story

Show the world our love

May it forever shine brightly in these verses

For years, I dreamed of my own Cinderella story

Finding my prince and riding away into the sunset

Living happily ever after in a perfect animated world

Though in those stories

You only get to the beginning of their journey

What happens to the prince and princess years later?

What does their love overcome?

I always wanted to know more

Because it’s about more than falling in love

It’s about staying there too

Upon meeting you, it wasn’t love at first sight

It took time before even our friendship would bloom

Getting to know you though was quite the journey

One I don’t feel will ever really end

In fact, I feel it’s only just begun

Over time, respect was earned

As our friendship grew

Other feelings began to surface

Though we both hesitated to act

Each had our own reservations

Many saw what we did not

The potential for something beautiful and true

Between me and you

Eventually we both saw it for ourselves

And in time we decided to give “us” a try

Like turned to love

No longer written on the pages of a fairy-tale

It became something real

Something enduring, something meant to last

Built upon a solid foundation of friendship

You’re my best friend and I am yours

Walking the winding roads together

Weathering life’s storms

Loss, grief, sorrow, hardships

Hand in hand, we’ve seen one another through

Laughter, joy, celebration, and hope

Growing stronger

Both as individuals and as a pair

Looking at where we are now

I don’t mind the road I had to take to get here

Our song isn’t your traditional love song

But it is as beautiful as any other

One to be listened to over and over

May all who hear it know where we’ve been

Where we are and where we will be

I love you, Doug.

Happy nine months
