I wrote this after ten years of marriage. I feel it even more after 21 years gone by. I love you Marixa!
If I had known what lay down this path
When I started down it long ago
I would not change a thing
I would not be who I am now
If the path had been different.
Of this I am sure
Loving you has shaped me.
You have helped me grow
Into a man that I am proud to be.
Each new day I wake up more in love
With the woman that I married.
She is so much more than the girl she once was.
Like stars colliding our paths intertwined
A gravity that we could not explain drew us in
We are still locked blissfully in love’s stronghold.
I am a decade down this road
Through paths that have curved and turned
But the journey has been so very sweet
For all of my life this path I will travel
Walking beside you hand in hand
For as I travel along with you, my heart is at home.
