Twenty Years


(I wrote this for my wife twenty two years ago this month).

Twenty Years
You and me
I wonder how
The next twenty
Will be
Full of splendor
Just like the past
Full of content
That will last and last
Full of hope
For each new day
Full of joy
That won’t go away
All from the Lord
The great Giver of Life
The One who gave me
My beautiful wife.

(Perhaps I will share the new one after a similar time has passed).
