Hi folks, I said I was going away for a while but I just had to come back and post this beautiful poem written by a dear friend and dedicated to her husband on the occasion of their twenty-second wedding anniversary. Enjoy. πŸ™‚

(Specially for Nana Kwesi Agyepong

IT HAS ALWAYS BEEN YOU

There was silence

With my three friends we entered the Physics Lab

And there you were; you sat alone

Looking a little startled

as if your thoughts had been rudely interrupted

Our eyes met…….uh, my heart skipped a beat

my gaze still fixed on you

what was this strange feeling

your smile disarmed me

your voice confused me.

Your gentleness overwhelmed me

After twenty and two years…

It has always been you. It has been L.O.V.E..β™₯

2

Oh it’s been 22 years already

four beautiful and adorable girls

and all the happenings in between

but it has always been you

In sickness and in health

in joy and in pain

in distress and triumphs

it has always been you

3

So on the occasion of our 22nd wedding anniversary,

I am thankful for:

Your unconditional love

and attention and care for me and the girls

Being who you are and allowing me to be the person

I have always wanted to be.

Your patience, calmness and gentleness

which still overwhelms and me

For the next year and beyond

Stand by me and let us stand together

for it has always been you

Walk with me and let us walk side by side

for it has always been you

4

Run with me and let us run together

for it has always been you

Play with me and let us play together

for it has always been you..β™₯

Sleep by me and let us sleep together

for it has always been you..β™₯

Sing with me and let us sing together

For it will always be you..β™₯Β 

Pray with me, and let us pray together

For it will forever be you…β™₯

Happy 22nd wedding anniversary my love, Nana Agyepong

and thanks for saying “I do” 22 years ago.

You still take my breath away
