Musings of An Old Man

ANNIVERSARY 63

TO MY BEAUTIFUL WIFE ON OUR 63RD
WEDDING ANNIVERSARY

MY LOVING WIFE
AS YOU CAN SEE,

YOU’VE SHARED MY LIFE
FOR 63.

ALL THIS TIME
WE’VE JUST BEEN “WE”,

SINCE YOU WERE YOU
AND I WAS ME.

FOR 63 YEARS YOU’VE BEEN MY WIFE,
INDEED THE FOCUS OF MY LIFE.

BUT WORDS LIKE THESE
CAN NOT RECALL,

THE JOY AND BEAUTY
OF IT ALL.

THERE’S NOTHING MORE
THAT WORDS CAN DO,

TO TELL YOU DEAR
HOW I LOVE YOU.

ANNIVERSARY 63 JINGLE
(Written during our anniversary dinner.)

HOW MANY PEOPLE CAN THERE BE
WHO LIVE TO BE MARRIED 63?
WHO ELSE COULD DO IT BUT JUST YOU AND ME?

AND YOU KNOW HOW WE DID IT?
WE KNEW WE WERE WE.
YOU WERE NOT YOU AND I WAS NOT ME.

BUT WE TWO TOGETHER
JUST ADD UP TO WE.
