Treading lightly the path to enlightenment.

Anniversary

I really had a great time on our 11th honeymoon.

Who’d have thought those years would be history so soon?

All those months and seasons and phases of the moon.

And did I mention that I love you?

 

We were so young, in lust and in love,

And along with the little ones sent from above,

We fought like tigers and saw the peace of the dove.

And did I mention that I love you?

 

Seems like forever I’ve been in love with you.

But the days and nights go by, sometimes they seem so few.

You know there’s nothing in this life we can’t help each other through.

Did I mention how much I love you?

And in my heart I know you love me, too.

 

A picture in my wallet brought a tear to my eye.

You know I’m sorry for every tear I’ve made you cry.

I’d give anything to ease your heart, from the Earth to the sky.

And did I mention that I love you?

 

I’d wrap up the world for you and lasso the sun,

Collect the moon and pick the stars up one by one and then

Wrap them in rainbows, and when I was done

I’d remind you how much I love you.

 

When the day comes and the kids have all grown,

I’ll be so glad to get you alone.

As we watch our children find loves of their own

I’ll remind them how I’ve loved you.

 

And when we’re old, our hair peppered and grey,

I’ll think of all the treasured times that came our way.

Until my last breath I’ll hold you and say

“Did I mention how much I love you?”

 

Seems like forever I’ve been in love with you.

Yet the days and nights go by, sometimes they seem so few.

You know there’s nothing in this world we can’t help each other through.

May I remind you how much I love you.

And in my heart I know you love me, too.
