Yes, my Answer is Yes ~

and  I shall marry you again - in the springtime - my love
our vows of love renewed -  through eternity - 

You are all my little life can hold
I've brought you up before my jury 
time and sense and sensibility 
and both my arms and both my hands 
and these two eyes that long to see your face 
have found you in a necessary place  ~

Your light blocks out the view 
your sun outshines the rest
upon the threshold of my heart 
you are the only guest 
and the last and that shall always be 
you and ours are all my life will want to hold
eternally ~

  2. A brave and lovely poem that has endeared you to me. Personally, I am afraid of commitment, which is why I only married once instead of oftener --but, after 44 years, maybe Norma and I should also renew our vows.

  23. Hello Margie,
    What a beautiful poem!
    This poem expresses eternal love so nicely.
    It is special when one shares an undying love with another person still after being together for many years.
    I love the photo Margie:)
    Have a nice day!

    1. Laura,
      Thank you very much.
      And even after over 30 years I am as much (more actually) in love as I was on the day I married.
      I am glad you have the same, what a blessing!

  25. Heard a priest in a nuptial homily say to the couple, just before their vows,
    "Of course you love each other now very much.
    But my prayer for you is that you will
    NOT love the same 50 years from now.

    I hope you will look into each other's eyes
    and say to one another, "50 YEARS AGO,
    WE HAD NOT A SINGLE CLUE WHAT
    REAL, TRUE LOVE MEANT.
    NOW WE KNOW, having together, come through LIFE...."

    This post is stunningly beautiful, brings goose bumps!
    Thank you. God has certainly smiled on your union.
    PEACE!

    1. Steve,
      Life has blessed me with so much and the greatest and most beautiful was meeting my love, my only love.
      We have had many struggles and the hardest for me was almost losing my husband (3 times) to death .
      I love him more today than I ever imagined it was possible.

      I so appreciate your kind words,
      Thank you, Steve.
