Come into my arms for you
have captured my heart.
It was many years ago that we swore never to
Your love has sustained me over the years.
Through all the joys, sorrows and fears.
Our marriage was meant to be,
God certainly smiled on you and me.
When He blessed us with children so rare
Certainly, no others can possibly compare.
Time has a way of fleeting by
Years have disappeared in the wink of an eye.
Though memories dim as far as details go.
Our love remains and just continues to grow.
The day will come when we must part.
We knew that from the very start.
That is why one will leave to prepare a place
To wait for the other with a fond embrace.
But till then we will enjoy our forty-fifth
Together we will await the Lord's angelic
Who will gently lead us home.
To reside with Jesus in the celestial dome.
Dedicated to my loving husband.
