    Making memories

    Yesterday was the most beautiful day I have had in a while. As I am preparing for an upcoming surgery, I was attempting to get in the activities that I enjoy that I won't be able to do for a while. I managed to go canoeing, motocycling and hiking yesterday which was a feat in itself as our summer has been quite wet (raining almost every day). In any event thinking of making memories prompted me to share a poem that I wrote for my beloved that I hope touches your hearts. Here goes:

    Where were you when I was lost,
    Right by my side, guiding me back
    Helping me to rediscover laughter, love, family and friends

    Where were you when I was down,
    Picking me up and dusting me off,
    Sharing a laugh and a smile

    Where will I be when you are down,
    Right by your side,
    returning the support that you gave to me so generously

    Where will we be when we are old...
    Continuing to share our life, love, hopes and dreams
    and basking in our memories.
