A poem for our Golden Wedding - love, trust and togetherness, a shield against all that life has thrown our way.


After fifty years

 

Fifty years, now together

On the sofa we sit

You watch television

I embroider or knit

You read the paper

Sudoku I play

We chat, often laugh

As we pass through each day

We discuss or argue

We still have our views

And keep up to date

As we listen to news

 

The grim reaper has been

More than once to our door

Stolen our health

But took nothing more

He couldn't destroy bodies

Though severely he tried

And our spirit remains

Many tears we have cried

I often can't breath

Your joints can cause pain

We are warm and not hungry

So we can not complain

 

Those holidays we missed

Would just memories be

We imagine and talk

About what we didn't see

Our hidden companions

Patience and hope

Stay close at hand

And they help us to cope

Few visitors arrive

Family live far away

While we still have each other

We shall conquer each day

 

What more can I say?

 

Nothing

Except

 

We were truly most fortunate

That day back in time

When our paths briefly crossed

And we heard love's bell chime

Audrey,
a wonderful tribute
Budd
Reviewed by Ronald Hull 6/22/2012
What a beautiful and charming way to express fifty years of marriage! It was a pleasure to read. So few now can claim been together that long. My parents had 62 years of dispute until they agreed on the terms of arguing. Somehow, they stayed together until my father's death three years ago.
