the best thing about us
is not how we met
or how we danced

it isn't how we love
or how we long
or how we laugh

it is certainly not
how we fight
or how we forget

and as beautiful as they are
it isn't the children
we've made together

or how we expertly handle
every crisis or 90 mph curveball
they throw our way

i wish i could tell you
it is our ability to weather storms
shaken but unbroken

and how we rise up
from every defeat
stronger than ever

no. 
the best thing about us
is that we remain

in each other's arms
at each other's side
We Are
