50 Years of Love

This is one of my favorites. It's the story of my grandparents written to help them celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary. Read their story in Love Still Shines below. It's one of the stories found in the Romantic Relationships section of Experience Life in Poetry Volume 2.

Love Still Shines

You were in a metal bathtub
On the fourth of July
When through a hole in your tent
You saw him walk by

You turned and you said
With a twinkle in your eye
“Someday, somehow
That man will be mine”

Twenty-six days later
You proved yourself right
When you married the man
You loved at first sight

Time went by
And your lives began to change
But he still showed his love
In little everyday ways

He’d buy you little gifts
Be gentle and kind
He’d give you a hug or a kiss
And pinch your behind

Today, your children are grown
Many years have passed by
But it’s still easy to detect
The love that shines from your eye

It’s been fifty years
Since fate brought you together
And it’s plain to see
That your love will last forever
