Our 11th Anniversary (Posted by Aaron)

It has been 11 years since Karlyn and I tied the knot! 11 years sounds like so long but, I assure you, it has gone by quickly. Karlyn and I rarely fight and when we do (usually my fault) it rarely lasts longer than a couple of minutes. We still hold hands all the time although it is a little less now that we have tiny hands to hold. I'm not sure what she sees in me but whatever it is I hope it remains because I want to stay with her forever.

At the risk of being too sappy I've written my wife a poem as one of a few anniversary gifts. I thought she'd think it was cool to post here so here it is.

The angels, in heaven, are beautiful. However,
can they compare to my sweetheart? Never!

They're missing a feature, they fall short by far!
My love, upon her face, a beautiful scar.

Each day the morning, my affection, misses
only my love's puffy lip receives my kisses

A beauty to behold in dress and heals.
but it's the dimple on her face that, my heart, steals.

Like a glorious fountain, for her my love flows
from her head's golden locks to her cute hairy toes.

Each one an enhancement. Not one flaw found.
Willingly and permanently, to her, my heart's bound
