Congratulations to my lovely parents, who are celebrating 25 years of marriage today. I’ve been truly blessed to witness such incredible love and commitment. Here’s to many more happy years together!
25 years of incredible marriage.
25 years in which patience doesn’t perish.
25 years of sun and rain.
25 years sharing a last name.
25 years of holding hands.
25 years performing a sacred dance.
25 years of being found.
25 years together bound.
25 years of beautiful devotion.
25 years as enduring as the ocean.
25 years of standing side by side.
25 years getting swept away by love’s tide.
25 years of walks along the shore.
25 years, here’s to many more.
I don’t know if I’ll succeed at love,
but I think I’ll give it a try.
I won’t be great at first,
but I’ll improve over time.
I can’t expect to be an expert
right from the very start.
I need to learn to cherish you better,
and open up my heart.
I’ve been deeply hurt a lot in the past,
but I’m in the process of repair.
If I don’t get over what happened before,
one day I’ll wake up and you won’t be there.
The only reason I sleep is to have a chance to dream about you.
If I could hold you in my arms, my time awake would be more true.
On a scale of creeped out to flattered,
how did you feel when I said I write about you all the time?
Were my words a deciding factor or did they even matter?
Am I getting closer or further to making you mine?
I’ll remain here until your return,
happy and content, patient and strong.
It may be many years from now,
but you’re worth waiting for that long.
