There are many types of anniversaries
many of them celebrated in ritualistic rites
of cultural display.
Not from the heart but of the ego.
Chiefly wedding anniversaries are celebrated this way.
Mostly by two people who take each other for granted
who are not in love with each other
but ~ love each other ~ hopefully.
But, the most important anniversary for lovers
is the one they remember the most in every detail
it is the moment they met.
The clarity of every detail comes out
what each other wore
where they met and the time of day
what each said to the other and most importantly
the exact moment they fell in love.
Lovers know how precious these memories are/
Their True anniversary is a private celebration
between soulmates ~ that lasts forever.
