Today your hearts are overflowing
Gazing back upon the precious years,
As you embrace the memories of such love
Your eyes fill up with tears.
Oh, the wonder of the days of courtship
The delight when you first met,
Your hearts exploded with the purest joy
Such fragrance you cannot forget.
To frolic with secure abandonment
And laugh as one to be,
Hearing music as you kiss once more
Held in your Lord eternally.
With devotion you kept your vows
Of promise to commit your hearts,
Together, unto the Father's love
To walk with Him your daily path.
When you look upon each other's face
You read such tenderness,
Beneath shy lashes, sweet gentle eyes
How could you love the less.
How hard you worked together
As one, to give all that you are,
Your lives fully devoted
To friends and family near and far
Your gift to each other is complete
Your heart for the other one alone
The love you share together
A blessing from the God you know.
