Love Over Time

22 Sep

Little habits,
turned to annoyances.
The snores through out
the night, louder than a train.
The smacking of your food,
smack-smack-smack.
Moments, quick to anger over
little nothings.
An instant, wondering if
this will all be
enough.
Age turns wrinkles
into experience, morphing
bodies into strangers.
Accomplishments
weighing heavy, together.
A family formed, with
pride and struggle.
The greatest fight
ever fought.
The best kind of work, but
most challenging, too.
The tedious ticking
of the clock as
twenty-six years pass,
and every day
begins to fade
together.
The saturday morning
coffee’s, sometimes
monotonous.
Nuance comes and goes,
like the seasons.
A life shared
is not truly
your own.
And yet, after all this
time, they wake up
and say, “I still choose you.”

Editor’s Note: A poem dedicated to the two most influential and supportive people in my life: my parents. Whose love and commitment to their family and one another, inspires me daily. It has been a beautiful life. Still is.
