Nine Years

It amazes me,
as I sit and think,
nine years have flown by
in all but a blink.

It has been nine years,
since we said, “I do.”
And today I am
more in love with you.

Within those nine years,
we have grown so much,
but I still will melt
at your slightest touch.

Inside of nine years,
we had our two boys,
who fill our lives with
much laughter and noise.

Each day of those years,
I’ve thanked God above
for giving me you
to hold and to love.
