For Mary; on our 45th anniversary:

I have walked with you:
on the shoulders of mountains,

along ribbons of rivers,

in the deep forest of trees,

along the edge of the shore,
under the cathedral of stars,
among spring choirs of birdsong.

Along this trail of life
that God has mapped out for me,
I would chose you again.
