Thirty-Nine Years ...

The longer I love you 
the more that it seems 
our thirty-nine years 
have been fashioned from dreams ...
that only I imagined 
would ever come true ..
dreams and reality 
blended in you ...
I wrote this poem to my husband 
I framed it in an 8x10 
and will be giving it to him 
this Saturday, April 12th 
when we go out to dinner 
to celebrate our wedding anniversary ....


  1. That is so romantic Margie, have a wonderful time, you look absolutely fabulous :)

  2. Oh, Margie, you are so romantic! And such a wonderful picture, too! It's delightful. My wife and I will have been married 45 years in August. I think I need to write her a poem, too. Thanks for the thought.

    I so appreciate you taking the time to visit and leave comments.
    Thanks so very much.

    Very busy day with my little Rose so I shall reply later in the week.
    Rose is napping now and I'm having a nice cuppa tea :)

    Blessings to all of you.


  28. Hi Margie .. sorry I'm late - but how lovely and you look stunning in the photo - no wonder he fell in love with you those many years ago ..

    I hope you had the most lovely dinner and just had a blissful time together ... and what a clever present - your words with your thoughts enmeshed ..

    Here's to many more and lots of happiness along the way - Hilary

  29. A belated Happy Anniversary to you both, Margie! :)

  30. Congratulations on your anniversary, Margie. What a blessing each year is when you have a long and loving marriage as you have had! I am so blessed to have had 56 wonderful years with my sweetie before he left to be with Jesus in October. June will be a sad month but one filled with sweet memories.

  31. You're using the gift that you've been blessed with, as a gift to your husband. I love the last line... "dreams and reality blended in you"
    I'm sure he loves all of the the words - framed to see and to feel.
    I love your words, too, as the rest of your readers surely do, too. :)
    Happy Belated Anniversary! You look smashingly beautiful in the photo.

  32. So romantic! You trim your years together with poetry and love....


Each day comes
bearing its own gifts ...
Untie the ribbons.
