it started with a trip to a shopping centre,
that eventually turned into a kiss,
was it really four and a half years ago?
my life turned from misery to bliss.
little Miss India with her infectious smile,
we’ve seen each other almost every day,
we are battling against the elements,
getting stronger and closer in every way,
some friends have abandoned us,
we don’t really know why,
maybe they are just so unhappy,
knowing we are having so much fun,
new friends though have been forged,
and better times are ahead,
we see the sun through the thunder clouds,
seeking positives in every situation,
no matter what people have said,
there have been long journeys,
and we’ve also had difficult times,
but every bleak tunnel has it’s daylight,
and everything always turns out alright,

the party started with a black cat,
feeding time for our furry friends,
four pairs of wise cats eyes,
got us in the mood for some fun,
adding to a package that came from england,
some new , well deserved clothes,
it made Elisa jump up and down in delight,
that’s how it began, it ended at midnight.
a drink of posh wine in a bar,
a couple of beers in another,
then I dragged Elisa screaming “no”,
into the nearby local pizzeria,
as if she would say no,
she never says no to a pizza,

home again and tired,
happy for what we have done,
celebrating 54 months together,
and as always having fun,
so thank you Elisa for being by my side,
thank you for bringing your smile on this ride,
as the sun shines down,
warming us both,
here is to forever,
that is our daily toast!
