today marks the day
of a decade
that was you and i.

one through three were
sweet
and tender,
four through eight
filled with pain so intense
i can scarcely remember it.
nine was utter
melancholy

but ten—
ten is a good number.
ten is peace
resolution
and a strength
that you will never take away from me.
