Here’s to thirty-five years spanned, 
A lifetime of memories;
Preordained by Divine hand,
Partners always, you and me.
Years thirty-five have now flown,

And thirty-six soon to be;
Nearer, O how we have grown,
New love now our destiny.
Intimacy still does thrill,
Vibrant, passionate and free!
Entwining yet as one will,
Rich in joy and harmony.
Sharing all things together,
Anxious for more time to see;
Ready, new joys discover,
Year by year, just you and me.

This I say most tenderly…
Happy Anniversary!

Written for my wife Katherine
