The First of Many

All too soon, a year has passed-
That's three hundred and sixty five
Days of love and laughter,
Days I've felt alive.

I still remember that evening,
That very first butterfly,
At the first chivalrous hello 
From a dashing, sexy guy.

All those miles between us
Disappear once every second-
With every word we text
You were right here, I reckoned. 

The plans we make, the trips we take,
The secret code we speak-
You know just what to say and do
To make this girl's knees weak. 

Won't you stick around for 50 more?
Let's make each one as grand!
Can't wait to share them all with you,
My sweet to-be husband. 

Nirvana Together

Nirvana, nirvana.
We went in search of it. 
Forging our solitary paths
In search of the Only Peace.

You in the blazing deserts,
Overturning every grain of sand,
In search of ultimate knowledge,
For to know, to learn, is to be.

I upon frozen mountains,
Looking for the lost spark,
Knowing it may never come,
Tolerance is the way I see.

And then we met, we became
Fire and Ice, Yin and Yang,
Changing the way we See,
That's Nirvana to me.
