Happy Anniversary to Us!

Bob and I will be celebrating

our 14th Wedding Anniversary

this Wednesday...

Maude & Bob Pych--October 21, 2006

Here's an anniversary poem

written for my hubby...


For Bob, with love—10/21/2020


There’s a framed poem

hanging on our kitchen wall

that I wrote while we were

on our honeymoon


We were at the Pool of Bethesda

in the Holy land—

Our tour guide told us

Bethesda means

house of loving-kindness


At that precise moment, I vowed

our home would be Bethesda—

a house of loving-kindness


Today is our 14th anniversary

and that honeymoon promise

has held true


Our home is still our sanctuary—

our peaceful refuge


It is a humble dwelling

but the very place we are pleased

to return to when the key

turns in the lock


As we enter, you predictably quote

Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz:


There’s no place like home!


Those words

and our shared happiness

never fail to put a smile on my face


Happy anniversary, darling!


God bless you for being

the cherished personification

of loving-kindness in my life


Maude Carolan Pych
