Wedding Anniversary - Poem by Alison Smith

Today marks an anniversary
Of two souls deciding to travel life as one
Today we celebrate the day we said “I do”
When we pledged our lifetime companionship

Not sure what term is for murder now
But we have been married for such a term
And we haven't asked for parole
Maybe its laziness or are we still a whole

We have been a bigger unit
When there were two other life forces
Joining with us for a time
We have done our job and they have gone

Today is our wedding anniversary
Its been twenty eight years
Sometimes it feels like yesterday
My father gave me to you

Will I feel like this in ten years time
I am sure I will for today
Was like the first time I decided
To join my soul with yours.
