The soft sounds of the babbling brook that is my memory,
Brings me peace as it flows on its journey to a tranquil place in my heart.
Crystal clear water cascading from the precipice of our union,
Replaces doubt with love’s comfort even when we are apart.
The churning turbulence of these first years together,
Starts to smooth out as we are buoyed by recognizing life’s charms.
There is a quiet, calm pool in the future,
I’ve seen it at a distance as I held you in my arms.
For we’ve built a raft with God’s love, you and I,
It will carry us safely over life’s many jagged rocks.
And as we look back on our journey and the memories,
The tranquil place will have kept us safe when darkness knocks.
