10 Years Ago Today

Updated on June 2, 2014
Source

Ten years ago today we said "I do"
Never knowing what we'd have to go through

The joy of being friends and sharing our days
Going out to eat, never parting ways

Buying a house planning for kids
Waiting with anticipation keeping the news under lids

The death of our babies the clouds rolling in
I wanted to give up and didn't know where to begin

We struggled some more but never gave up
More babies on the way, will we have any luck

Two new lives, a family of four
A new role to play one we can't ignore

Through the good and bad we've made it to ten
With a friend like you how could it ever end

How long have you been married?

      Joe - Hope you are in good health my friend.

      Some things are too raw to unearth but perhaps over time. You just never know what life will bring you as I'm sure you understand.

      Thanks for reading and your comment. Enjoy your weekend as well. :)

      Heather, there are hubs within your poem that are yet unwritten. Looking forward to reading them when you unearth them...

      Aloha, and have an adventuresome weekend!

      See, you have some great stories you could write about and inspire others. :) I love hearing about love stories that started as children. So rare and special.

      I think the real secret to stay together is the communication.

      In our case, there was no skeleton in the cupboard. We met for the first time when we were 12 years old in high school. He just arrived in Belgium from Holland... not speaking a word of French. An I was in Belgium since about 6 years at that time coming back from Africa. So we both had a "cultural shock". We started to go out together at the end of grade 12.... we were 18 years old. So I know him since 46 years :-)

      We have a group picture of our class in grade 7... were we are both there... it's quite special.

      Beautiful, Heather! Congratulations on your 10 year anniversary!

      I think it's worth the ride to hold on to each other and work through the difficulties because there are a lot of joy as well :-) I have been on that ride for more than 37 years now... and not regretting one day!

      So hold on tight!

      Thanks for sharing your pictures!
