HAPPY ANNIVERSARY PG AND ME



ANNIVERSARY


I was alone and lonely
Also I spoke to no one
And the world seemed
A strange place.

Tried to kill the pain
(Oh! the hurt was terribles)
Of a quarter-century love
Running in the rain.
Running from my life

I, like wounded bear
Few would near--dare
Gossip I could hear,
Faces I saw sneer.
I was kindly left alone.

Across a crowded room
You and I, and soon
I spied you, eyed you
("Will you be my wife?
And live with me my life?")

For the good and bad
For the time, for the love,
For the happy and sad
We have shared
Thank you Anna

So, in nineteenth year
We are still here
Still together
Still sober
STILL

Marriage and sobriety make a wonderful mix when our Higher Power is the head of the house. You celebrate 19 years of recovery in wedded bliss, and Joe and I celebrated 18. It just gets better and better. Thanks for all the inspiration you and Anna dish out in blogland.
Love you,
Chris
