Anniversary Of Our Love

Forty years of bliss and non bliss how do
you ever try to marinate all the non harmony
moments, to tenderize its foundation

By standing by each other and always knowing
irreguradless of how hard the situation may be for
the other, the tomorrows of our souls will mend
the broken rainbow and make our days shine
once more

Waiting each night for your return, to say how
was your day, is only a small part of my love
and how we managed to withold all the raging
seas and weather them to an island of tranquility

Thank you for the most wonderfull forty years of
my life, without you, my soul would not be in existance

Happy Anniversary and know, I would do it all, all over

To Tom, on our anniversary of our love.......

    What a great loving tribute to the one you love on an anniversary.
    I like to put on a tough facade or exterrior, but beneath it all, that is how i feel 'bout my wife of six years. I guess i'm a mushy romantic at heart. Don't tell anyone, though! I hadda giv'vit a tenner though.

    Tom is a very lucky man!

    Indeed a woman's love is the most powerful force, and Bonnie didn't you convey it well. Forty years...Damn. Makes my twenty five seem like an engagement. Loved this piece as always.
    Best regards, Craig. (Report) Reply

    …touching sonnet on the 40th anniversary of your love… wielding the power of your pen and the overflowing feelings of your heart..

    The sweet sour memories of togetherness are written,
    On the paper roll of heart with a golden pen;
    The bitter sweet momentary ego’s fight,
    Never overtook insatiable love’s delight;
    The clamoring memories of the love of yore,
    Assure me your love will shines once more. (Report) Reply
