These are the Best Days

I love days like this...

days of
love and laughter

as we look back over pictures
marveling at how young we were and

saying to one another...

"I've given you the best years of my life"

and today you are 42

(which makes me smile)

double the age of when we fell in love
and I just need to say...

"I've given you the best years of my life"

my youth
my innocence
my "best days"

and I am so blessed by how you've warmly

received them
welcomed them

wrapped your love around them
and given them back to me

one by one
year by year

"You are giving me the best years of your life"

and I will

cling to them
cleave to them
cherish them

until we are both fully gray


Happy 42nd Birthday Winston

and here's to the next 42...

our new best years
