Happy 36th

 

Wedding anniversary number 36 – and no one has murdered anyone, yet!

I will not take my love away,

when praises cease and seasons change.

While the whole world turns the other way,

I will not take my love away.

I will not leave you all alone,

when striving leads you far from home.

And there’s no yield for what you’ve sown,

I will not leave you all alone.

I will give you what you need,

In plenty or in poverty.

Forever, always, look to me,

And I will give you what you need.

~Matt Wertz

  1. Happy Anniversary, and many more to come! I was touched by the Matt Wertz poem, but like Joanne Woodward I think the happiest marriages are based on both mutual kindness and a shared sense of humor.

  2. Hey, thanks for the like at Vox Diaspora! I was so busy talking about birthdays that I forgot that December has two anniversaries for the family– one for my parents on the winter solstice, and one for Cimmorene and I on the 12th.

    We’re less than halfway there at 14, but it was 40 for my folks that last December. I’ll have to show this to Cimmy– she’ll likely agree with the Joanne Woodward quote, but I rather liked the Matt Wertz one.
