IS IT REALLY?

Is it really so many years...
Since we first met?
Since your smile melted my heart in its glow?
Since your first tentative attempts to start a conversation?
Since your fingers trembled, on my back, as we danced?

Is it really so many years...
Since you asked to see me again?
Since I began to plan what I could wear?
Since we sought seperately to be patient until the night arrived?
Since I saw you waiting, shyly carrying a gift-wrapped red rose?

Is it really so many years...
Since we opened our hearts to each other?
Since we shared our hopes and dreams?
Since we shared our deepest hurts and failures?
Since we dared to try to be all that the other needed us to be?

Is it really so many years...
Since we learned to have fun together?
Since we talked and talked for hours?
Since we danced the night away?
Since we kissed on a wobbly wall?

Is it really so many years...
Since you first asked me to be your wife?
Since we 'floated on air' wherever we went?
Since we grinned continually - like the proverbial 'Cheshire cats'?
Since your pledge of love first sparkled on my finger?

Is it really so many years...
Since our wedding day?
Since we said, "I do!" in front of family and friends?
Since we danced the night away like Prince Charming and Cinderella?
Since we sneaked away to our honeymoon hotel?

Is it really so many years...
Since we truly tasted 'heavenly delights' together?
Since we learned to 'give and take' from each other?
Since every song SEEMED to be 'our song'?
Since we loved and laughed and loved again?

Fourteen years of highs and lows...
Deepening love, difficulties and pain...
Yet... still, Thank God...
I would say "Yes!" again and again!!!
