Fifty Years Ago

Fifty years ago,

On this momentous day,

Two people made a sacred vow,

And changed the world forever.

.

This vow they made was special,

And great things came from it.

Children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren,

All cared for with tender love.

.

Together they worked for things they needed,

And though this work was hard,

They continued on with all they had,

And life gave its reward.

.

Throughout the years trials came and went,

As trials tend to do,

But laughter, joy, and happiness,

Still exists, and will continue.

.

Fifty years ago,

A couple fell in love.

Today we celebrate that love,

And its eternal light.

.

Dedicated with love to my grandparents,

On both sides of the family.

Fifty years of marriage,

Fifty years of love.
