Our shelves are still empty
of trophies to put on display
or little souvenirs to gather
dust; we have not accumulated
a lot of milestones or victories
or hurts, not yet. People always
ask us when this happened, or
started happening, and we give 
each other a little smile before 
telling them it hasn't really 
been that long ago. But we will 
fill up those shelves, slowly 
and purposefully, and someday
we will stand back and look at
all the things we've done
together——good things and grand
things and simple and delicate 
and daunting things——and say, 
"We better make room 
for so much more."
