To my Wife, Minnie, married September 26, 1981
Here’s wishing a Happy Anniversary
To my nearest, dearest friend;
Who’s been right here beside me
For years and years on end.
You’ve helped me climb a few ladders
Of success during difficult times;
When others didn’t believe in me
You were my shadow right behind.
Everything I did and said
Rather I was right or wrong;
Believing in me always
When I was weak or strong.
You lifted me and gave me strength
When no one else was there;
And called me names like “Sweetie Pie”
To show how much you cared.
We had some fun and raised our young
To have faith and believe that wishes;
Come true in the end if we have a few friends
As I found in you and all your kisses.
The years have passed and we have lasted
Longer than most would have guessed;
And all I can say is
Happy Anniversary today
To the one that I’ve loved best.
