Anniversary Gift

Created this poem for my dearest wife, Swathi, for our 15th anniversary.  While learning to strengthen the writing muscle, I wanted to try something new.  Letting go of structure and letting it pour from the heart, this simply fell out of my head. She has been the source and inspiration for all of my success, wisdom, and joy.

When alone, I am lost
With you, I find my way
You are my strength, love, and hope
In our journey, wherever it may take us
Together, I am eager for the road ahead.

-Anand Thaker
