My husband says it's weird being married to a writer - you never know which bit of your life is going to end up in a book. We've just celebrated our wedding anniversary - seven years of driving each other crazy - in every sense of the word! This year I wrote him a sonnet, and he has given me the go ahead to publish it here for you to read.
With true delight I always will remember,
The day you asked me if I'd be your wife,
My warmest, sweetest, memory of December,
Lives in a golden moment - the best in all my life.
Your diamond ring outshone the sparkling sea,
and dolphins danced and my heart leapt the waves
For happiness, that you would share with me,
A future bright and perfect as that day.
The weather has proved changeable and storms have rocked the boat
The cynic in me questioned love, the promise seemed a liar,
But if I ever doubted we could keep our dreams afloat,
I’d find them in your arms, my love, like metal in the fire.
I never thought it possible – that this is how I’d feel,
Until you came into my life and showed me love is real.
