On New Years Eve Day 1939, my in-laws were married. Except for two years during WWII and last year after my father-in-law past away, they spent every year together. This New Years Eve, they will celebrate their first anniversary together for all eternity. I only had the privilege of knowing them for nine years, but they were truly magnificient people. This is my final good-bye to a wonderful couple, who gave me a wonderful gift - their daughter...


On a cold winter day

our hearts were warm

by each others side we would stay


Only separated by World War II

at the end of the year

always reminiscing, saying “I do.”


In Marysville, Kansas we became one

New Years Eve was everyday

and our love was never done


Commitment our children would see

a bond they’d understand

within the strength of family


Love grew with new sons and daughters, too

children by marriage

we love everyone of you


We watched you start families of your own

grand-children bouncing on our knees

our little children were now grown


The years kept flying by

but we were never alone

now great-grandchildren were by our side


We’ll always be with you

but now it’s time

never forget we love you


We’re starting a new life together

it’s fresh and it’s new

and our love will last forever…
