Thirty One Years Ago…

Thirty one years ago, I took his name.
Thirty one years ago, I made him promises. I kept them.
Thirty one years ago, I told him I would love him forever. I still do.
Thirty one years ago, the world was ours. Now we share it with three beautiful children.
Thirty one years ago, we thought we knew each other. Every day we still surprise each other.
Thirty one years ago, I thought I knew what commitment meant. Now I know.
Thirty one years ago, we were young. Now we’re young at heart.
Thirty one years ago, our hair was a natural brown. Now he’s a handsome gray. I’m still brown.
Thirty one years ago, if I could look ahead and see our lives together, all of the ups and downs, the smiles and the tears, I’d still take his name.

Happy Anniversary, Philip
