We've traveled several rocky roads together.
Sometimes I didn't think we'd get this far.
Three children and twenty-five years later
We're more a couple than we ever were.

Years of trying polished off the edges
Because we both possessed the will to try.
What we got is one of life's great treasures:
A garden on the shifting sands of time.

Love demands a kind of self-surrender
That sometimes is with difficulty won.
All who join in marriage must endeavor
To make another's happiness their own.

This sacrifice quite often seems so easy,
But day by day and year by year it's not.
Trust enables one to love completely,
Living with one's charity unlocked.

Our love is like a deep and verdant valley
Nestled in the mountains of desire.
Though all of life's a dream that passes quickly,
We've made a place among the circling stars.
