Thirty-five years ago
before we were old enough
to vote or take a drink
we took a vow to forever link
Our lives together

Such a monumental pledge it was
Yet we knew it was the thing to do
Our love was strong
Our life together would be long
We knew it in our hearts

We plunged forward in joyful bliss
With hopes and dreams abounding
Soon challenged by life’s realities
We strove to overcome our frailties
And we did

And who in this perilous age
Would have thought
Or dared to dream our vow
Would last ‘til now
Our 35th anniversary

So here’s to us, my love
Together we have persevered
And conquered each and every fear
And as we embark upon another year
May our love last forever

Wonderful write, and with your expressions and devotions it will last forever. You need to go back and put an edit of your wife and you in a picture of this poem. It is so sweet and romantic. Little late with this comment, but I just found your site. Katie

In reading your bio, I see you also began pursuing the writing dream late in life...it's a grand thing, isn't it?
