You've been with me two sweet and awesome years:
The best years of my life; that is, so far.
You are my passion and my guiding star,
Whose steady radiance calms my foolish fears.
How easily you wipe away my tears!
How bright you make my days! How good you are!
I love the way you leave yourself ajar,
Letting in my anger till it clears.
I love the way you play with little kids,
A father in the rough, yet soft and kind.
I love the way you laugh with warmth and ease.
I love the way you close your eyes, the lids
Shutting out the worlds you'd leave behind,
Your head upon the pillow of my knees.
