After Fifty Years

After fifty years of sharing, and those fifty years of caring,
here are two who travel on today together.
Only love that’s deep would make it: love that’s guided from above.
We’re blessed this day to be the witness to their love.

Thank you Mom and Dad for being here with us today.
Thank you for the love you’ve no doubt shared along the way.
As a child I could not understand the challenges you faced.
As a parent, I’m now certain that some days with pain were graced.

And for fifty years you’ve traveled, on through pain and fear.
When the day was dark, before the dawn, you shed a tear.
Now I know that next you said a prayer: the love you share is strong.
God alone could be the Love which has carried you along.

Now with joy we celebrate two lives united in God’s Love.
Growing closer with each day as blessings from above
never cease to fill their human hearts. God’s Love grows without end.
And Love’s river keeps on flowing as they share love with their friends.

Thank you, Mom and Dad, for the faith we witness here.
We’ve been blessed to watch your light shine brighter with each year.
We are richer for you’ve shared the Love God planted in your hearts.
May God shower you with blessings; may your spirits never part.

After fifty years of sharing, and those fifty years of caring,
here are two who travel on today together.
Only love that’s deep would make it: love that’s guided from above.
We’re blessed this day to be the witness to their love.

Dear Mom and Dad, I’m blessed to witness to your love.
