Knowing all too well the rough seas we must travel,
as well as the calm, we plan our journey ahead.
Being all too aware of the dangers that we will face,
yet determined and steady we prepare.
Packing all necessities
required for a wonderfully long trip,
checking over the list once more,
we decide it is complete and set our course.
Having previously travelled
with others, yet bounding to fail.
A quiet belief dwelled within,
that this voyage would not.
Having ticked off love,
an enormous amount stowed.
Support we had already shared,
through deepest dark hours into the
radiating light, always there for the other.
Commitment, day in and day out
as forced to be a part had asked us to do.
Loyalty, we had stood by one another
regardless of all that was thrown in our paths.
Faith that each other can do anything
and that together we can achieve everything.
Honesty, something that had been a given
from the day our paths crossed.
Trust, which we had demonstrated
in the meeting of a familiar stranger.
Adoration, admiring all we had discovered
through long discussion also witnessing first hand.
Nourishment, growing always together,
never once leaning toward different light.
Dedication, devoted only to one another
and making sure the path was clear.
Patience, shown constantly never judging
only accepting without condition.
Kindness, remaining always
in our eyes, words and hearts.
Passion, and desire unbridled
in ever look, word and touch.
And a connection that reached over the miles
of vast ocean originally setting us apart.
This relationship we had innitiated together
holds all that is required for a successful peregrination.
