Seven Years

Seven years have gone by

Seven years of love to be lost and found

Seven years of finding a new, more real definition of faith

Seven years have gone by

Seven years of screams, tears, and laughter

Seven years of finding out what I don’t know

Seven years have gone by

Seven years of surprises

– both the worst and very best kinds–

Seven years of finding I can carry more with each load

Seven years have gone by

Seven years of hellos and goodbyes to old friends

Seven years of finding I’m never really alone at the end

Seven years have gone by

Seven years of growth I didn’t always want to feel

Seven years of finding each day brings a new hope all its own

Seven years have gone by

Seven years of mended trust I once thought I’d never touch

Seven years of finding  you’re still here with me

Seven years have gone by

Seven years of trials and gifts I equally felt I didn’t deserve

Seven years of finding I can’t foreshadow the next curve

Seven years have gone by

Seven years of sifting sand, making choices, and life– moving too fast–

But seven years of memories I wouldn’t take back

Because every last choice I’d make again

To make sure I fought through these last seven years with you.
