That Faded Rose - Poem by Daniel Wittfoth

God, you looked so beautiful
on our wedding day in early July
With your hair falling gently over your shoulders
dressed in pink and white
And the love I felt at that moment
was too much to ever hold inside
than you became my wife

It took all we had saved up
just to buy that one room house
Working day and night
to make all of our dreams come true
than came our first born

And oh! on that very special day
all the love I could see in your beautiful eyes
Spent the rest of that summer
building stronger memories and another room
pictures to last a lifetime

Now time moved on for us
bringing another child and happier times
And all of our dreams were fulfilled
as our children grew before our eyes
as our love grew stronger in our hearts

And our eyes saw seasons changing
as our children began to move on
We've had a lifetime full of love and joy
so it was bound that one of us
would go to be with the lord

Pressed between the pages of time
the first gift I ever gave to you
And it brings back memories of yesterday
and a aging silent tear to my eyes
I go to sleep tonight
thinking of you, my love

Tomorrow will bring the warmth of the sun
and our fifty-first anniversary
And our children with our grandchildren
will stop by to spend the day with me
I'll talk of you and that faded rose
while I hold back the tears...
