I was going to title a poem Milestone, to celebrate the writing of my 300th poem, but, instead, decided to commemorate the anniversary of the wedding of my wife and I. Fifty years of living togethter IS a milestone and more fitting to mention at this junction in life. Like any marriage, there are ups and downs but we are happy for the positive aspects of our lives together. That March 6th was a snowy one and glad we are decent this year.
A goal reached
A pinnacle climbed
A moment to remember
For all time.
Recorded in history
Talked about for sure
Pride to be taken
As a thing that endured
Over 18,000 days of love for each other
A total 50 years of exciting times together
A milestone reached perhaps, BUT,
Time now for the succeeding laps.
