Life is a wet and dreary road,
We've splashed through puddles with a song
as, merrily, we rolled along.
We've crossed high altitudes and low,
sped up too fast and crept too slow,
taken roads that others spurned,
O'er peaks and potholes, we have learned
that true companionship is earned,
that tolls are tolls and must be paid,
and detours (mostly) are self-made.
The past is precious in our hearts.
So many stops. So many starts.
This history is yours and mine,
but we're far from the finish line.
Let's mark this anniversary
beyond the hill, around the bend?
We're two for the road that has no end.
For Dave, on the occasion
of our 40th wedding anniversary.
