    for my very special one...

    there are special times
    we commemorate and celebrate
    throughout our lives...
    first words, first steps, first birthdays
    there are moments so precious
    we capture them on film, freeze them
    frame them
    in our hearts
    seal them in our minds
    memorize every detail of the day,
    the hour, the minute
    when absolute joy came knocking...
    and we opened...

    this golden time
    this year
    this moment
    right now
    is the culmination of
    so many minute-by-minute
    baby steps

    the crowning act for
    all the effort
    all the labor
    all the love

    for all time

    seize this moment
    this golden time
    in your golden year

    and shine....

    (so proud of you) :heart:

    This is most special. I remember my golden year, but it wasn't as eventful as what's going on inside this poem, sad to say.

    These words will be framed, no doubt.

    Peace

    This is a beautiful Peace. Golden years do come from golden months that came from golden days, golden hours, golden minutes, golden seconds. Pure gold like you Poet.
