Upside Down (OctPoWriMo Day 5)

Capturing in words a relationship where love runs deep is a challenge--NOT because there is nothing to say but because there is SO much to say and because, honestly, ANY one emotion could be pulled out of a bag and be used to describe any number of events and moments in that relationship. That's really the beauty of deep relationships.

I must admit, I did not write this poem today. I wrote it a few months ago--a poem about the relationship I have with my husband, the one constant love of my life. We've had our moments, our days of struggle, but these are insignificant compared to our years of living life together--from travelling and working overseas with minority language groups to raising kids and being forever parents. I am forever grateful to God for bringing him into my life.


  1. I know exactly what you mean about there being too much to say. And I love your last line 'I love life upside-down.' Thank you for sharing such heartfelt thoughts.

  2. And I love this beautiful and fun poem. Thank you for sharing.
