An ode to our 20 years…

Hello readers,

Today’s post is dedicated to a very special person, my best friend and partner, someone who has been a part of my life for more than half my life ♥️
GHAALID
 This is for you…

Twenty years ago our separate lives joined to become one. 
Bright eyed, we turned our faces to the sun and the horizon,
And set off on the path of the unknown.
Our only aspiration sharing our lives, interests 
And building a promising future.
We set off with the unfettered enthusiasm of youth, 
 And without the prescence of worldly cynism.

And we plodded along, making our way,
Finding ourselves, celebrating and sharing every milestone;
The two of us against the world,
Building from scratch and demolishing what no longer worked.
Along the way,
We have weathered so many storms, 
Side by side.
We stood tall, and navigated our way over hurdles;
And through turbulent hurricanes.
Against the odds, we showed the naysayers, 
Our youth and naivite helping us,
That standing united was always the answer.
Swimming in a sea of jaded adults,
 We introduced our new family, 
Barely out of adolescence ourselves. 

We nurtured these little beings, 
Kept our focus inward, oblivious of what others were doing.
Staying true to our connection,
We managed to make it through those early parenting years.
We emerged to find our charges grown into adolescents,
Not far from where we were when we first set out.
We emerged on the other side,
 To find that twenty years had passed.
Glorious, and at times not so much. 
But Always filled with Love,
Filled with understanding, unwavering support,
And Mutual ambition to make a success of our journey.

So here we are, twenty years later;
A bit wiser and greying at the temples.
And upon reflection I realise,
That I wouldn’t change a thing,
I wouldn’t change a day
Of these precious 7,305 days we spent together.
Love you always…

My decision, my judgement, my promise still stands.












Soundtrack:

Adele, 

"Make You Feel My Love"


When the rain is blowing in your face,
And the whole world is on your case,
I could offer you a warm embrace
To make you feel my love.

When the evening shadows and the stars appear,
And there is no one there to dry your tears,
I could hold you for a million years
To make you feel my love.

I know you haven't made your mind up yet,
But I will never do you wrong.
I've known it from the moment that we met,
No doubt in my mind where you belong.

I'd go hungry; I'd go black and blue,
And I'd go crawling down the avenue.
No, there's nothing that I wouldn't do
To make you feel my love.

The storms are raging on the rolling sea
And on the highway of regret.
The winds of change are blowing wild and free,
You ain't seen nothing like me yet.

I could make you happy, make your dreams come true.
Nothing that I wouldn't do.
Go to the ends of the Earth for you,
To make you feel my love
To make you feel my love”



Forever yours,
RuBe xoxo
