I Can't Remember Any of the Words ~

I can't remember any of the words
or the promises we made 
I only remember that you were there beside me 
and that afterwards we walked out into a brand new world together 
for the world was different 
and we were different 
neither of us was afraid 
because we were 
together.

The bright morning sun smiled upon us 

as the clear blue sky 
and the green hills of earth
whispered in hushed wonder 
as the gift of love 
was bestowed upon us 
praying that we would treasure it 
care for it tenderly 
with daily devotion 
that love might live 
forever and ever.

I can't remember any of the words

I can't forget any of the beauty 
when love was born 
when life began!

(On April 12th my love and I shall celebrate 

  40 years of wedded bliss 
  Happy Anniversary My Dearest, Darling Love
  I am so looking forward to our day of celebration!)
