It Started with a Simple Ring
This quote is by an anonymous writer is very heartfelt.
"It started with a simple ring, many years ago,
And now you have a treasure chest that's begun to overflow.
For 25 years of married bliss, much silver did you store,
And then you reached your 40th, with ruby stones galore!
You traveled through life to 50 years of happy wedded bliss
Your treasure grew with golden gifts, to toast your happiness
But the treasure that you value most isn't jewels, silver or gold
But the love you have for each other, that has never grown old!
Congratulations on your Golden Wedding Anniversary."

For as you were when first your eye I eyed ,
Such seems your beauty still."
