Add A Candle ( take 2)

Today, I add a digit 
to my age. 
Another birthday. 
One year ago,
I was married 
to a man who adored 
and believed in me,
and loved
beyond reason. 
And in last year,
I witnessed his full living 
right up to his last breath. 
His appreciation of me
never 
faltered. 
Ever. 
That is a gift
I receive still, every day. 
I am blessed by that. 
But still
today,
I wish he was here
to share
birthday cake.
