in connecticut - i knew
and you knew
that we’d find a little box and make it into a home
that there were babies that were to be ours
that there were years to spend
and that we had to be together – for all of it.
you sold your car
and bought a ring
seven years since white tulips and violins
seven years since a little chapel on the outskirts
seven years since dear friends gathered
and sweet promises made
happy anniversary, love.
