A Poem for my Husband

To celebrate our 13th wedding anniversary, I have decided to be brave and *gulp* share a poem I wrote for Evan. I wish I had the words to say how I feel about him, but luckily, he loved it. He even told me that he read it again and again while watering the roses! So here we go…

“Because” by Rachel Doboga

Because the sound of your footsteps
coming towards me
changes the rhythm of my heart.

Because when you play with my fingers
I swear I feel my nerves regenerating.

Because your words have the power
to rearrange my soul,

And your praise illuminates
my besotted heart,

I love,
I love,
I love
you.

* I can’t post comments or reply to them, but I can read them and I love them. Keep writing!
