Thanks, Babe (nopowrimo 23)

Those were some lean times in ’07
Standing in the kitchen with dinner
Taking the evening walk alone
Building the pyramid of pillows
For a solitary and stationary night of sleep

That fall was our renewal
When the changing colors of the leaves
And teasing chill of winter
Brought us together
In a suburban kind of way

All these years with all our baggage
And I can’t believe
How crazy you make me
From the challenge of the daily grind
To the depths of our love
It’s all great

I’m a better man than I was in ’07
Because of you
And the way you have opened my eyes,
My heart,
My world
I love your way
The toughness
The fragile side
The beautiful sides

I love it all.
