Love at seventy

For my beautiful wife, Vera Rosina, happy seventieth

I write this love song for my wife
She’s seventy today
And though the years have passed on by
That girls she looks okay
She has that kind of beauty
That age could never fade
She’s a special kind of angel
Who was in Heaven made.

My Vera Rose has everything
A girl could ever need
And as the years go passing by
That girls she still does feed
That sense of pride so strong in me
I always marvel at her
She’s a ‘one off’ girl for every season
My heart she still does stir.

One never knows what love is
{Not the purest kind of love
The one that bonds two folk together
And is blessed by God above}
Until they have grown old together
Oh, I know this for sure
Cause as each moment passes by
I love my lady more.

    Thank you shadow, we've had our ups and downs and our forty eight year marriage has seen it's share of hell because of the very wild ways I once had. But you are right, it's all about tolerance Peter

    Hello Peter, happy dedication for your wife... can i say wow! a great love with all the honors. My father is 77 years old. my mother passed away at the age of 74... the day before the funeral all he did was brag on how long both had been married... 54 years.... I held in the tears, for a second, and hugged my father, cause never has he loved no other but my mother... I love the way you ended the poem... with each passing moment,,, more is all I wish for every loving couple.... xox~ LINDA
