Crystal Anniversary

April 23, 2010 § 6 Comments

15 years since we told each other “I do”
Our anniversary this year is crystal

But our marriage has never been that clear
And we’re the first to admit that it’s some kind of miracle

That we’re still here
That we still even like each other

That we still believe in us
That we still rock each other’s socks off

Because our marriage has been no fairytale
We’ve both had our moments when we wanted to bail

Because our life together has been anything but perfect
We both have wished, however fleeting, that we never met

This milestone is as much miracle as it is a prize
And it’s taken a decade and a half to verbalize

That I wouldn’t trade one second, not one
Of this in it together life, of being your wife

And I’ve learned that what’s crystal about it
Is that love is fragile and needs special care

    Wow! 15 years! And I thought your marriage was all champagne and roses.

    Happy Anniversary and thank you for sharing that beautiful poem. 🙂

  • Colleen says:

    Beautiful. Happy anniversary. 🙂

  • Sheri says:

    Shady – Yep, 15 looooooonnng years. I’m kidding…well, sort of. The last year has been really good though and it seems to be getting better. Thank you (though it’s actually still a couple weeks away yet) and you’re welcome, I’m happy you liked it.

    Colleen – Thanks on both counts. It’s not quite our anniversary yet but I’ve been thinking a lot about this one.

  • Lisa says:

    Wow. This is wonderful, and I absolutely love it.

  • Cate says:

    Real, vulnerable & so, so true (as a veteran of 21 years of marriage!)

    Happy Anniversary girl – am glad to have you as a kindred spirit over there in Canada!
