Our First Anniversary

To commemorate our first anniversary, this poem is a reflection of how my story has changed from a life without you to a life with you.

Since that time last year, when we both said “I do,” I never once thought about a life without you.

From that moment on, my story has changed to a life with you.

This current chapter of my time at NYU dental school and New York City has, thus far, been relatively the same story I have had in the previous chapters of the life I had without you.

However, unlike those past chapters, this present chapter is very different since it is a life with you.

The grace of God, family, and friends have helped me overcome past struggles and obstacles in the previous chapters of the life I had without you.

Yet, since the time we’ve met and became part of each other’s lives, the recent challenges and stresses I’ve had to endure were different since this time I was able to face them with you.

Since you entered into my life, I will never have to live alone in a life without you.

I look forward to the chapters yet to be written with you.

I can’t imagine the story I would have had without you.

Because life is so much better with you.
