Lucky 21

you bet
yes
my husband did say that
when the rabbi asked him
if he would take me
as his wedded wife

21 years ago today
he said that
smiling
to take off the edge
to make me laugh
he did then
and still does

21 years
lucky 21
an ace and a king of spades

21 years
3 houses
3 daughters
1 dog

many days of laughing
crying
talking
sleeping

so many hours
of worrying
of calm
of staying up late
of homework

many weeks of
vacations
research papers
family situations
driving
