Dear Reader,

Hopefully you were as contented as I was to quietly slip away from the vision of newborn baby Catherine sweetly cradled in the lap of 4 year-old Vincent. Well, while we’ve been busy with other things our ‘little ones’ have grown together into adulthood and have joyfully committed themselves to loving one another forever (the wedding will be another story!).

Musing on Miracles

Moonlight
Finds our bed
Glistens in your hair
Glories in your beauty
Vincent

You sleep
And I savor your weight 
Your warmth
Your very being
We are together
Again in this way
Forever in all ways

Tonight
You fashioned it more beautifully
This giving of one to the other
Than has ever been before
Oh Vincent
Blessing upon blessing
Our love has become
A living being 

Even as you sleep in my arms
You know it

This could not be
Without both of us knowing
Though you will surely
Let me speak the words to you
And taste my joy

Flavoring it with yours

Fathom
Beloved

My fulfillment
Your love
Completing me
Boundlessly
Spilling over 
Creating

Vincent 
For so long

I called you
Brother

Friend
Confidante
My first steps
Toward you

My first words

To you
Playing
Laughing
Crying
Learning
All
With you
Until
That birthday dance 
When we knew
We both knew

Came 
A time
The chosen time
To say the words
I love you
Let me be yours
Be mine forever
I know
The fears
You had
I know
They are of the past
Now
You believe in my love
You trust in yours
For me

Vincent
Thank you 

Thank you
For the love
That lives 
Its own new life
Within 
And makes us
Family
Sleep now
Embraced
Surrounded and safe
By love caressed
My dearest Husband

For you, Dearest Husband of mine
