The rain beats hard against the windowpane
Bringing back memories of what we hoped to obtain.
The glass is cold and smooth beneath my cheek
As I gaze into the darkness so black and so bleak.
Our romance has been rocky and filled with doubt
There were times we were unsure and almost backed out.
Now we are together and never plan to part
Our love is cemented and we give it our heart.
The darkness is broken by the lights of your car
It’s time to pour the wine and wish on a star.
As you open the door, I greet you naked and ready
So in love with each other that we both are unsteady.
Greeting each other with hands, lips and tongue
This at our age is what makes us feel young.
We have been married you see, for over thirty-five years
Years of ups and downs, always being together facing our fears.
Looking forward to living the best years of our life
We are together forever, proudly man and wife.
