Flashes across a crowded room,
glimpses, a smile, a sideways glance.
At first sight, my heart knew.
My mind argued, ’tis purely chance.
My mind said it wasn’t possible,
But my heart pattered its rapping dance.
There were some surprises and hiccups,
but we saw each other through.
Now we’re closer than imagined:
me beside you.
Today is very special.
It comes every year.
It’s the day you came into being,
therefore, I hold it dear.
My life without you wouldn’t be complete.
So, today, I treasure you, today’s masterpiece.
