The following poem appears in our Summer 2014 Digital Issue. Read the rest of Bridget’s poem and the entire issue.
Before day is done and sun sets one final time
I want to say I was here
I loved the changing of each season
Winter’s finality yet to come
I want you to know before I leave
that I liked our day-to-day routines forged by years
of learning each other’s dance
I loved the safety in your arms
the comfort and warmth in your embrace
I came to completely love my life with you
fell in love with the beating of our hearts
the unending mingling of our breath
