Growing Old Together - Poem by Meggie Gultiano

(A Wedding Anniversary Poem)

I thank God for giving you to me
Two hearts entwine sealed in a golden cage
Loving, as we have never loved before
Sharing our good times and bad times
Enduring trials, enjoying one another
Singing songs that bind us together
And praising God, for there is no other

We are committed to love forever
For better or for worse
For richer or poorer
We don't have treasures to keep
We only have each other to give
As we continue to surrender our lives to the Almighty
Praying that we will grow old together
Even in another time, in another place

I want you to know that I LOVE YOU
I want nobody to care for but you
Until the end of our journey here on earth
Holding each others hands in Heaven
