Happy forty-eighth anniversary!
A celebration of a lasting love!
Pleasures pass, but love remains unmoved,
Planted in a garden by the sea.
Years may be consumed by vanity
And crises one remembers little of.
No loveless passion will resilient prove,
Nor intimacy long sought long savored be.
In love alone one finds a joy that lasts,
Vested in a person, yes, but made
Eternal by the music that it sings,
Revealing depths beyond one's western shore.
Sing, then, as the autumn sunlight casts
A touch of gold upon your green-clad glade,
Rejoicing in the happiness love brings,
Yearning, though the heart is full, for more.
