Our days become decades,
Our years, eternities,
Our minds and heart ever more one.
Your smile becomes my beacon,
Your love, my very life.
Your deepest soul enlivens me.
Our eyes and our lives, even more closely united,
Your face, even more the sight I yearn to see.
Your soul touches mine at the very moment I want to feel . . .
As now and throughout all eternity.
Scott L. Vanatter, 20 July 2004 (Poem written for Becky's 50th birthday.)
