Twenty-eight years ago on the twenty-fourth day of June,
we committed ourselves to a loving life together,
and off to France we flew for our honeymoon.
Our careers blossomed as our love grew–
Giving us the confidence
to our own souls be true.
Each home we’ve owned brought happiness and peace.
By our side, always kitties,
causing our love to increase.
To this day, I recall your ponytail bob,
as down the track you ran,
making my passion-struck heart throb.
Grateful we are for the people touching our lives–
Some over a lifetime, others just a moment.
Through all the ups and downs, our love survives.
With time we’ve matured, adding to our years.
The sparkle in our eyes still endures
through laughter, cheers, even some tears.
For each of us, I believe it’s fair say,
that the best in our lives has happened together–
Things we could never imagine have come our way.
I’d do it all over again…spend my life with you.
On this twenty-eighth wedding anniversary,
our soulful commitment and beautiful love renew.
