Anniversary by Grace Y. Estevez – Reddy

Inhaling each breath you exhale,
knowing our love could never fail.
A part of me lives in your eyes,
your presence makes my spirit fly.

We met each other magically,
to change our lives so drastically.
Enhanced by our diversity,
our love extends eternally.

Swimming through life, collecting facts,
while gaining proof that pile in stacks.
Flying in our own hourglass,
forming fond memories as they pass.

Feeling you there all day and night
allows me to shine a bright light.
My constant person, through all time,
a best friend, spouse, partner in crime.

Another anniversary
brings warm and happy melodies.
A perfect love, our hearts combined,
we walk through time, our hands entwined.

Our bond, difficult to describe,
a cure for love that god prescribed.
Euphoric bliss, stronger each day,
enhancing life in every way.

    Grace writes of a love so deep and profound that it cannot exist in any other shape or form. A relationship is built upon many things and it takes time and patience to discover the perfect ratio for this. A love that can withstand hardships and insecurities is a treasure to be salvaged. I can feel the writer’s spirit resonating in her words. I’d like to add that she’s one lucky gal to have found a soulmate to inspire such beautiful words.
    Congratulations Grace!
