Our 2nd Anniversary
years ago, on this day, we were wed...
It hasn't been that long that we've been married;
Yet in this span of time I've seemed to shed
The skin of whom I was, so coarse and carried.
You've made my life so rich and full of meaning--
Once used to solitude, alone I'm lost;
Without you I am merely half a being,
At your side I shall stay at any cost.
Like creatures in the wild, I do adapt,
Responding to the atmosphere surrounding;
With you, in warmth and comfort, I've been wrapped--
It's made my new shell soft and ever thinning.
The metamorphosis of my outside
Reveals my growing love for you inside.
- Ash, August 1995
