It seems like only yesterday,
...I took you as my wife,
Yet it seems forever,
...you have been my life.
Eight and twenty years ago,
...I took your hand in mine,
Gazed into your deep brown eyes,
...and vowed I would be thine.
Looking back in retrospect,
...were far too young to wed,
High school sweethearts still in school,
...would never work they said,
Starting out with cupboards bare,
...we built a life as one,
We rose each morning hand in hand,
...and faced the rising sun.
Four children born, four children grown,
...I love you even more,
Than a day so long ago,
...I'll love you evermore.

Mike...this was wonderful. I would have to say, that's one lucky wife you have there. Nicely written and what a nice tribute to your better half

You have such power in your words. I have yet to read something of yours that didn't move me! This is a wonderful tribute to your marriage! You are both lucky to have each other!
