|Memories this day come singing, singing,
Each a voice in an angelic choir,
Returning with new grace and glory, bringing
Canticles of love and chaste desire.
Even those of sorrow, tinged with tears,
Devoted to a poignant minor key,
Emerge redeemed and softened by the years,
Singing with the rest harmoniously.
Reveries are music two can share.
Over years of love their melodies
Become one sweet and satisfying air,
Embracing all life's complex harmonies.
Rich, full memories that tuneful prove
This day shall join in one praise song of love.
