hastily written for a forgotten anniversary
|Loves first spark the night we met,
So casually ignited,
So gently came we failed to notice
How intense the fire it lighted.
For how many years can the flame endure?
We know thirty-nine have gone
As pearls on an endless string of love.
Eternity is not too long.
Tonight I see a cloudless sky
With stars the moon can chase.
And there I see the hand of God,
The vision of your face.
