The Wedding Gifts

Gift Box Wedding Cake by pinkcakebox


The plates have chipped,
the cups have cracked.
It's much too late
to take them back.

The quilts have ripped,
the towels are rough.
The toaster works--
one side's enough.

Two decades and
four thousand miles
are hard on dishes
and textiles.

The best gifts never
fade, you see:
of me for you,
and you for me.



For my dear husband

  2. Everything will be destroyed by the time, but the love is growing up between us.
