Bless The Day We Found Us.......
Our 17th Wedding Anniversary...Febuary 2003
I was just thinking of Saturday and wondered what I would say if asked to make a speech. What would I say indeed?
One thing’s for sure, there is so much that I could say about us that most of those present can already see; yet there is nothing I can say that will ever show them the true love we share and the relationship that we have.
There are those who wonder why we have chosen to celebrate a 17th wedding anniversary. I find this interesting because it is a natural tendency to measure a relationship in terms of the numbers of years clocked. I suppose it is all a matter of perspective.
Ours has always been one of a countdown rather than of notching the years. A conscious decision we made to cherish and relish our remaining years together has enhanced our relationship and defined our marriage.
Every anniversary we share reduces the number of anniversaries we have left; yet we are happy. We are happy to have found each other, we are happy to be together, we are happy to walk together.
My darling, you are to me more precious than life. If given a choice between immortality without you, and counting down years together with you, I would choose the finite.
May the years we have left be more than the 17 wonderful years we have shared as "US".
Though star-blazed skies my mind contained.
The solitude of night my heart concealed,
Love's emotions were so fully restrained,
Thus did I hide behind a self-made shield.
And then you entered into my life.
Bewildering feelings, dazed and confused,
But you continued deeper like a knife,
Until my hardness was thus subdued.
What I never thought possible for me,
You've done and that I'll always treasure.
My heart burns fervent with love for thee,
Our souls delight in each beyond all measure.
And as you place that ring onto my finger.
I know for certain I'm enraptured with an angel divine.
You and I
Forever meant to be.
Immutable! Inseparable! So unbelievable!
I’ve never told you just how much I needed
your every touch and sigh.
You’re everything I wanted
or have ever dreamed of
and I feel as if
I’ve been reborn
into a mystic universe
pulsing with your love.
Just hold me close, feel my heartbeat and walk in my soul
I will breathe for the both of us.
Something has awakened in us.
Those words simply cannot describe it.....
Bleed my last drop brings forth a whole new day, love and dies for you
whatever comes our way.
And throughout this universe I dare to say.
There is not another that could make my heart so sway.
"I am grateful for having you in my life, and I thank my good stars for me to have found you"
Love and Blessings to "US" and may the Universe bless us with many more to come....
