NaPoWriMo #2 (Nineteen)

I write, first and foremost, for me. To maintain my grasp on memory. But, also to share my love…

Dave & Amy, this one is for you. :)

Nineteen

By Tracey Ast ~ April 2, 2013

nineteen:
an old woman’s nostalgic dream.
a lifetime for some.
adulthood, just begun.
peaceful minutes for a mother to savour.
hours of labour.
inches of babe in arms.
the year they built a house on a farm.
a day of birth,
for the one along side I walk the earth.
children to hold close to my heart.
short months between a sister’s and her brother’s start.

today it’s nineteen,
sweet loving pristine
years of marriage,
and two brazen hearts to cherish.
