43rd Anniversary!

It’s that day of the year again – Anniversary number 43!!!
And a poem to celebrate it.

Remember, remember, the eighth of November,
What God has joined, let no man sunder;
Forty-three years of wedded bliss,
Just seems to have flown in a beautiful mist.

Remember, remember the eighth of November,
How many days left? Who can number;
Whatever they hold, is not ours to give,
We just cling to each other in the rapture of love.

Remember, remember the eighth of November,
A day together that we’ll always remember;
The bodily aches and the pains of the years,
Have not diminished, holding each other so dear.

Remember, remember the eighth of November,
Nesta and Jimmy will always remember;
So thankful to God, for each given day,
Trusting He’ll keep us together, the rest of the way.

©️ Jimmy Hamilton, November 2018
