For My Wife

We have so many memories
Of all the days gone by
The children raised and gone
Once more it's time for you and I.

There was a few times
We had problems along the way
But true love persevered
And our love is here to stay.

It doesn't seem that long ago
That we said the words "I Do"'s been a lifetime
Since we first said "I Love You."

Like most couples starting out
We saw good days and also bad
But we've weathered all the storms
Through these many years we've had.

We had such fun within these years
Just being Dad and Mother
Now in the Autumn of our lives
We have more time for each other.
