thank you, my darling, forever

by Jeff Rainwater, for my beloved,
10 February 2017, Cheyenne, WY

Once upon a time
(not so long ago,
for we are not so old)
in a land far from here,
(called North Carolina)
a maiden,
both beautiful
and brave,
saved a young squire.
With but a look
and hope for more
she drew him
from his prison.
Longing for love,
yet terribly afraid,
there he had sat,
lonely.
Never again!
Not every day since
a happily ever after
nor each adventure
a triumph,
for this is no
fairytale.
With the sunshine
there have been tears
and a few
I am sorry’s.
Yet there has also been
more than a little
magic,
and most of all,
love.
Thank you,
my darling,
forever.
