As I have been invited to a Fiftieth anniversary party this weekend, I reflect on all the words and letters this couple have exchanged with each other in fifty years! I am giving them the gift of a song I wrote that I hope will reflect the love they’ve shared on their golden anniversary.
Excerpt of lyrics from the song “Fifty Years” by Cherie Turlington – all rights reserved
In both of your hands long ago,
God placed a treasure
A great pearl beyond measure
Rarer than the finest ruby
The gift of a heart, so precious
A great love to hold and cherish
Fifty years of loving and listening
Fifty years of sharing and caring
Fifty years of being a safe haven
For each others’ heart to come home to
May you have many happy memories and letters of love to look back on at the end of a long life filled with love and sharing.
