Happy Anniversary

I've become a student
of your morning faces,
your thoughtful pauses,
your simple good-byes.

I'm a learned pupil
of the shape of your hand,
the rhythm of your breathing,
the voice in your smile.

And I could write volumes
of the pictures in your eyes,
the depth of your throat,
the topology of your flesh.

Yet still
You surprise me.

**Originally written in 2004... still true today.**
