Scott Austin

Our Twenty Fifth Year

For where has the time gone
It was but yesterday
When we first met


For the past quarter of century
We have been together
It has been just a moment in time


It seems that time has stood still
Since I have been with you
These twenty five years


You truly have been
My best friend, my lover,
And my life long companion


I can still remember
The day we met
Even our first kiss


For I am not old
Just more refined and a bit wiser
Because of you in my life


For you have given me
Everything that I ever needed
In this wonderful life


You stand beside
Help guide me
For you are the forces


That makes our
Life journey together
So magnificent


I would like to say
Happy 25th Wedding Anniversary
To my loving sweet wife
