Happy anniversary my love

We just celebrated our seventh anniversary. Every year is special, but this one meant more than all the others because we are more grateful then we ever thought possible. Michael gave me the most beautiful gift- a handmade necklace by an artist who takes old pictures of NY and reduces them to tiny portraits that are put into round lockets that resemble little globes. Beautiful. And then he gave me this:

I can dance with you in the kitchen
Sing to you with lights on my head
Make you laugh
Which fills my heart with love for you.
I can hold you in my arms when we sleep,
Make love to you and feel your body with mine.
I can shiver with you in the cold,
And sweat with you in the heat.
Drink cold water and smell freshly cut
Grapefruit.
All the small things that make life I am
Grateful for, since the time
I walked through the shadow of the valley of Death
And feared not death nor evil,
For you
Were with me;
Not as an angel but as
An avenging warrior girded for battle
With forces unknown
And won.
I love you forever.
