____ years of friendship through letters and email
built a great foundation for our tale.
____ months after you got home, we met
and made official the vision we’d set.
____weeks between dates were always worth the wait
with COVID-19 putting people in terrible state.
____days, hours, and minutes pass as through a fine-toothed comb
until the time we together can create a home.
____ seconds to change the world with a word: Yes!
I choose forever with you and nothing less.
