10 years

10 years! i heart this photo

today
grub
and i
have been
together
for 10 years.

i tried
to think
of something
to write
all day.
something
that
didn't sound
cheesey
or
overused.

but
i couldn't
think
of the
right words.

because,
i think,
there
are
10 years
of
words...
and
moments
and
expressions
(grub has
the most
expressive face).

people say
love grows
or
love fades...
i think
love is.

like the
moment
(i imagine)
you hold
your child.
you know
love fully.
it doesn't
need to grow
because its
all there.
right there.

that's
how i felt.
it was
there-
complete.
complete in grub.

now
i've
gotten
all cheesey.

oh well.

happy 10
sweet grub.

Congratulations, SAPPY RABBIT. I was watching the movie THE MOTHMAN PROPHECIES, and suddenly realized there is something very RICHARD GEARish about Johnny's face....(That's a compliment coming from me BY-THE-WAY...), BUT then there are the photos like the one in this entry where he looks so darn cute in a special Johnny sort of way too....You two are very lucky, and I love hanging with you both...Hopefully for a long time to come!
