A Golden Journey

You were eighteen and I twenty two That day at the alter when we said I do Since then the years have traveled so fast For us in a marriage they said wouldn't last They are too young, the voices said Much too young for them to wed They are just kids, they have no idea I doubt they'll even last a year But our love was greater then our age Together we stepped upon our stage Performed the roles of husband and wife Acting as one throughout our life And now after all these years are done We still meet each new challenge as one Our hearts have merged and every day Together face what comes our way Those that said it wouldn't last Are now just memories from our past It seems in fact our love was true I cherish my fifty years with you To my lovely wife on our golden anniversary February 3, 2012 Iambic Tetrameter

    Beautiful tribute, Bob. Well deserved win. Congrats on your 50th. My wife and I will celebrate our 54th in Dec. She has been very sick since July but beginning to show some improvement. As a result I have been inactive in PS since Aug. All the best to you and yours. Ralph

    A lovely poem and tribute Bob. congratulations on your first place win. I had just 21 years with my husband when he died at 41. I've always wondered how it would have ben to have celebrated our 50th. Love, Joyce

    The number of years pales in comparison to the joys contained. I know we have been blessed.
