Forty Years of Love - An Anniversary Poem

On this Eve of 911, we try to find solace in Remembering our Loved Ones whether living or past. 

Several years ago, my parents were celebrating their 40th Anniversary. We were hosting a huge family party and I was asked to give a speech. I tried to find something fitting but could not find the right words. So, I decided to write my own poem.

Then as I visited the CMF site today, I read a Featured Article titled:

With that good news, I decided that now is the time to publish my Poem. It is dedicated to all parents, grandparents, partners, and loved ones who have reached an important milestone in their lives together here on earth or in heaven.

Forty Years of Love

Forty Years of Love
Together Hand in Hand
As on the Day They Met So Young
Together Hand in Hand

They Talked of Love
They Talked of Life
Together Hand in Hand

They Had Their Kids
And Raised the Kids
Together Hand in Hand

Yet Through the Years
They Faced their Tears
Together Hand in Hand

Then with a Blink
And with a Flash
Forty Years Has Past

And Here they Stand
Before Us Now
Together Hand in Hand

With Forty Years of Love

Two years ago, I modified the poem for my in-laws 50th Wedding Anniversary. You too can do this by substituting the word Forty with the word Fifty. Additionally, I believe that any "..ty" year will work, i.e. Twenty, Thirty, Forty, Fifty, Sixty, Seventy, Eighty, Ninety

Should you use this poem in one of your celebrations, please let us know. All we ask is that you always give us credit as being the author and mean the words.


PS: Congratulations Jim and Carol on your 40th Anniversary.
