OctPoWriMo: Day 17

To learn more about this challenge, please click here or click the butterfly image at the bottom of this post.

Surrounded by my enemies,
A banquet laid before me,
I walked down the forever aisle
To the one who adored me.

The token now on my finger,
His surname given to me,
He vanquished the opposition,
This man who did adore me.

He keeps at bay the hostile hearts,
His love it does sustain me.
Savory and familiar,
This man who still adores me.

    I just wanted to say how much I love your picture – beautiful!!


    • Thank you!

      If I remember correctly, it was taken about the time that Davey graduated from Marine boot camp (Fall 2014). It is one of my favorite recent pictures of us. A lot has changed since it was taken. David’s beard is longer. He doesn’t plan to shave it until Davey comes back to us. It won’t ever get shaved if our youngest daughter has her way. She told her daddy that he’d better not ever shave it. My hair is a lot grayer now. 🙂

      Thank you again for your sweet comment. I appreciate it very much. Have a blessed evening. 🙂
