Nice, simple, splendid...I like the progression of the relationship/years...
That 3rd stanza- brought me back to the many times I stood looking down in my kids cribs, staring at them while they slept! Then I was trapped in fear that when I walked out I'd wake them, but those moments of staring at them were so precious!
How quickly time passes..sometimes all we can do is watch it go..sadly
That's amazingly done - the timeline - all with the use of the prompt :)
This 'splendid isolation' changes the happy ,(seemed at first read), meaning..What kind of prompt is that SS2 ? Thanks.
