Sweethearts as children, married adults,
A lifetime of marvellous memories made;
Forever in love, love unending,
A relationship steady, unswayed.
It’s 54 years ago, that vows were exchanged,
Today, the first anniversary apart;
Separated this year, but for a while,
Not even death extinguishing the love in your heart.
Congratulations Dad, and if you can hear us, Mom,
On a race together well run;
An exemplary marriage of faithfulness and trust,
Overcoming challenges together, well done.
One day that reuniting will occur,
The circle will be unbroken again;
Till then precious memories will linger,
Lyrics of love will be your heart’s refrain.
