Love Stanzas

I write of celestial moons and flying carpet rides, 
Of seasonal hues and rising tides. 
I write when golden sunlight fills the skies, 
And emerald hills enchant my waking eyes. 

When the aroma of thulian roses scents the air 
And wind blows the willows like Pele’s hair. 
I write of all things that remind me of you, 
How I’m sheltered by your shadow in all I do. 

When I hear the sweet call of a turtle dove, 
I smile at your deep amorous voice I love. 
You are still the one after thirty seven years
Though we've endured a few hardships and tears

It has strengthened our bond as we have grown old
Our wedding vows seem to be written in gold.
You put my feelings first and I reciprocate
I cherish the fact that you are my soulmate.

When moonlight gleams on our island sea 
Our love songs will echo eternally. 
The love we share remains pristine and pure 
As our souls combine and forever endure.

Thank you very much Carol. Only about half married couples or less now days make it thru a long union, so it is an achievement, though challenging. : )

Thank you WW. Marriage takes dedication from both mates. We are opposites yet it keeps life interesting. We strengthen each other with qualities we both need but don't possess. : )
