A Golden Wedding Celebration Poem
Going for Gold!
Looking back over these past fifty years
There’s been much laughter sometimes even tears
Considering all the mad things we’ve done -
What do we care - it’s been fifty years of fun!
We’ve had our share of struggles up and down,
Me being the worrier, you the clown,
But we’ve stuck together through them all,
Never letting pride come before a fall!
And if we’ve had a bit of a ding dong,
We never hold a grudge that would be wrong,
Best to forgive then cast it from one’s mind,
To try to cause pain would just be unkind.
I know you agree, well…I think you do,
Love freely given so constant and true,
Supports us and keeps all our troubles at bay.
But what is it that makes love want to stay?
When we wed…No, not fifty years ago?
Time’s passed so fast not in the least bit slow.
Would vows made then run to their full extent -
Seems time invested has been time well spent!
I cannot, in public, speak from my heart,
That same heart says we cannot live apart
Nothing can dismantle our love so true
Death will die before I would part from you!
My shy heart cannot speak of love out loud
Though in company of a friendly crowd
But this poem is here for the world to see
Now they know I love you and you love me!
