We have our own vows
written by: Christina Strigas
when I was reckless, you drove my car.
when I was doubtful, you read my book.
when I was needy, your arms felt safe.
when I was mournful, you wiped my tears.
when I ran, you caught up to me.
when I drank, you held back my hair.
when I lost the baby, you cried with me.
when I gave birth, you were my rock.
when I slept on the couch, you slept there with me.
when I met you at sixteen,
we met again every year after that.
when we fight, me make up.
when we make up, we remember
why we have
the same ring.
when you fuck me,
we still make love.
when you meet a soul mate
you never break up.
