On Marriage


When you're married you know that you love your spouse.

You know it so well sometimes you forget.

It's like breathing.

You do it so often its just there. Unconscious.

And then there are late nights of insomnia like tonight.

Where you lay there listening to him breathing next to you.

The soft steady in & out.

And you think, "That's the most wonderful sound in the world".

The sound of a soft & steady husband.

And then you think, "How did I get so lucky?"
