    We finally made it – you and I,
    through the times, bad and good,
    mostly good –
    but the bad was more remembered.
    Years of roller coaster rides,
    my emotions like a free fall –
    air sweeping my face,
    my palms sweaty,
    my hair nappy –
    waiting to be rescued.
    You finally rescued me.
    I don’t know when the fight stopped,
    or when the love started,
    when the bell chimed, or
    when the light switched to the on position.
    But thank God it did.
    I don’t know how we found our way
    through a forest of dense trees, prickly bushes
    branches, and dead limbs
    that left scars of war on our flesh –
    on our hearts.
    But here we are – living and loving together.
    I guess it was all part of a higher plan.
    Something greater that was determined to make us work,
    to make us love –
    even when it wasn’t convenient,
    to make us strong,
    even when we wanted to be weak.
    I guess we finally relented to the forces that called us to be one with each other,
    til death us do part.
    It’s funny how fast situations and circumstances
    turn 180 degrees, and then another –
    How I hated you,
    How I loved you,
    How I wished I’d never met you,
    How I wished I could hold you.
    Now I can’t imagine life without you.
    Forever is my promise to you,
    Love is our promise to each other.
    It won’t always be sunlit days in gardens
    full of red long-stemmed roses,
    But we will always be –
    Forever in love.
