Walking down memory lane;


holding hands with my Deb.


Reminiscing on yesterday,


On a love that doesn’t ebb.


 


Eyes on tomorrow,


But enjoying today.


Life, it is changing;


As I become a new Day.


 


Peeling away the layers,


We create a new life.


None could deserve it more


Than my own darling wife.


 


A small Baptist Church,


I can’t believe t’was 25 years ago.


A beautiful bride strode slowly to me,


Her face adorned in a heavenly glow.


 


Twenty five years,


Where did they go.


Blessed for a quarter of a century,


Because she didn’t say “no.”


 


How could it happen,


Such a magickal thing.


I can still sense that wonderful feeling,


As she let me slip on her ring.


 


A Church full of well wishers,


Family and friends.


They saw us off on a journey


That never, ever ends.


 


Rice in the air,


rice in our hair.


A smile was born


That I eternally wear.


 


A love that grows


As a living blossom.


I spend all of my Days


With a girl I call Possum.


 


I can’t help but recall


The fear that I felt.


I prayed for happiness,


On bended knees I knelt.


 


When an angel marries a troll,


Tis a wondrous thing.


A monumental occasion


To make a heavenly chorus sing.


 


I can see my hands lift the veil


To uncover her sweet face.


I can her my heart thumping


And I can feel it race


 


What were those words?


What did he say?


“I would like to be the first


to introduce Mr. and Mrs. Day.”


 


What a magnificent statement.


What a beauty sound to my ears.


We faced the future together


Without any fears.


 


I can see the smiling faces


And I can feel the love in the air


As he took us by the hands


And introduced as pair.


 


It sounds kind of corny,


Like some childish game.


But one of my favorite things


Is watching her sign her name.


 


Twenty Five years


And it still makes my head sway.


When I watch sign a check,


As Mrs. Jeff Day.


 


Still one of my favorite things


To have heard someone ever say.


“I would like to be the first


to introduce Mr. and Mrs. Day.”

J.L., what a wonderful tribute to your wonderful wife. Isn't it a great feeling to look in the face of the one you've loved all those years and still get gooseflesh as you kiss her lips. It makes me so happy to read about a happy couple...I've been truly blessed to so I know exactly how you feel. Live each day to the fullest and be thankful you captured a true love.

J.L.,

Excellent feelings. Like the old saying goes, "Tomorrow is the first day for the rest of your life." Congratulations on your accomplishment. May all your Days be filled with love, joy and blessings.
