I told someone the other day and she gasped,
and said, "You don't look old enough"
Which is absolutely the right response.
We're having a few friends over next Friday night to celebrate.
There will be food
As we met in the 80's,
Our song is 'Solid' (Ashford and Simpson).
It's the song we used to dance to at parties.
It's the song that made us laugh.
It's the song we always talk about when reminiscing.
Our 25 years together hasn't been perfect
You won't be surprised to hear that.
There has been much joyful song.
But sometimes the notes have turned dischordant.
Sometimes we've sung in a minor key.
More recently we have sung songs of lament.
But to mis-quote Gloria Gaynor
We have survived.
We're still standing (Elton John)
And we're still singing from the same hymn sheet.
If you read this.
Thank you for always being there.
For being a wonderful father to our three boys.
For being my protector.
I love you.
And look forward to making more beautiful music with you!
