29 Years and Counting!

In honor of our 29th wedding anniversary, here is a poem I wrote years ago for my husband. Some of you may remember it…

box-with-red-bow

The Box

You placed it in my hands, adorned with a red bow
only a short clip of time had passed by our window

After pulling out tissue paper of white
I was entranced by the amazing sight

For inside was a lifetime together and
a house to be filled by the love we would gather

The walls stood bare waiting for memories to dress
showing reasons for us feeling truly blessed

The best gift of all, though, I am thrilled to say
was your heart at the bottom, committed to stay

(Over the years, some things have changed besides us getting older :). God Bless my husband’s mom and both of my parents as they rest in Heaven. And we hope for  another 29 years, so we can continue growing old together.) 💕

    1. Thanks for your lovely words, John, and I agree that growing old together sounds like a blessing. We went away for the weekend and had a wonderful celebration. Have a good Monday!

    1. Aww, Ben, I think both count very much. Our anniversary is our special day, no one else’s, so that’s special in itself. And then, of course, enjoying each day is a given, something never to be taken for granted. We went away for the weekend and had a great time. Making more memories…Now we’re on our way to catching up with you and your wife. 🙂 Congrats on your 31st!

    1. Thanks, Betty, for your lovely comment. We actually went away for the weekend and had a great celebration. The last time we went away, we carried backpacks, so this time, the luxury was nice for us both. 🙂
      I hope you had a good weekend, too. Sending love and hugs! ❤🥂🎼😊🌻☕

    1. Thanks so much, Annika, for your beautiful comment about the poem and photos. I still have my wedding dress, and I also have my mom’s from 1945. 🙂 We actually went away for the weekend and had a magical celebration. Now, heading towards our 30th! Have a lovely day, my friend. 💕xoxo

    1. Thanks so much, Audrey, for your lovely words and wishes. I also appreciate you stopping by. As my tagline reads, this blog is about poetry and tidbits of life, too. Hope you enjoy whenever you have time to visit. Wishing you a wonderful day.
