On our 48th wedding anniversary:
It’s long love matters in the end.
The sudden rushes of the heart
while magical to comprehend,
it’s time that makes a lover-friend.
New love and passion have their say.
without the power of knowing this,
how ties grow slowly by the day,
and make two one; we grow that way.
So here we stand; the ancient song
that makes all lovers know at last,
the secret place where where we belong,
abiding here; our love is strong.
