Note: I am an awful person and always forget to get an anniversary card for my husband until the last minute….not a great effort for only 3 years of marriage. This week, I ended up with the last card in the petrol station which was not in the least bit anniversary-related, and 30 minutes before we left for dinner, I penned a quick acrostic poem whilst putting on my lipstick! I ended up really enjoying having a “deadline” to write something which was surprising. Although it is somewhat messy and imperfect, it came from the heart and my husband loved it, which is the most important thing…
Husband; my all, my constant, my
Unwavering source of life, air and
Sunshine. I bask in your light and
Bathe in your steady waters.
And when the storm comes loud and strong, your
North Star guides me to shelter, and we
Dance once more under a perfect August sky.
