I linger to remember-
that feeling of old December
when you asked me
for my hand
I didn’t have to consider
if I wanted you forever
I said yes to love-
you were my man
and knew that I would never
have any regrets ever
even in stormy weather
I’d be your fan
I couldn’t wait to be your wife
we talked for hours, we planned our life
and you and I held hands
as we watched the setting sun
when our love
We recently visited my in-law’s house, the place my hubby called home for many years before we got married. I was at that house every single day from the time we started dating until the day we got married. I remember sitting on that bench by the lake nearly 20 years ago near their home and wishing time would just hurry up already! I wanted to be married and have kids and have a house of my own. I remember the desperation I felt at that time. Life just couldn’t go fast enough for me.
Oh how I wish I could go back and chat with my 18 year old self!
I found myself sitting on that same bench this past week, remembering how much I took for granted back then…how I wished my life away. Wouldn’t it be great if there were a pause button for “life”? I wanted more than anything to sit on that bench and remember how it felt to be young again!
It’s hard for me to believe- this Christmas Eve it will be 20 years since my husband asked me to marry him. I remember it like it was yesterday.
And if he asked me again today-
I’d still say “yes” 🙂
Rejoice, O young man, in your youth,
And let your heart cheer you in the days of your youth;
Walk in the ways of your heart…
