Light the corners of my mind
Misty water-colored memories
Of the way we were
Of the smiles we left behind
Smiles we gave to one another
For the way we were
Can it be that it was all so simple then?
Or has time re-written every line?
If we had the chance to do it all again
Tell me, would we? Could we?
Memories, may be beautiful and yet
What’s too painful to remember
We simply choose to forget
So it’s the laughter
We will remember
Whenever we remember…
The way we were…
The way we were… — Barbra Streisand
Two decades of togetherness!!!
Feels like just yesterday that the journey started…
It was raining in the morning… It rained at night… don’t you remember?
What did we learn from along this journey?
In many ways, we are opposites, than we are similar..
Isn’t that the beauty of our relationship?
We were together, we were apart..
Being away for a short time
Got us to where we are never apart.
The tears along the way
Made the smiles that followed, to stay.
The freedom that you gave me
Turned on my wings to fly
The words of wisdom that you shared
Led me to live my dreams.
If it weren’t for you,
Our children would not be the same
And who am I kidding,?
Even the food on the table may not be just as good….
And oh, our (my) arguments…
How can we live without that?
There ain’t nothing as sweet as its ending.
Twenty years, has just come and gone…
I wish upon for another twenty and more
All along with you, just the way we are.
You are not perfect, ( and so am I)
But you are perfect just for me…
A toast for years and years of togetherness
With the tears and the smiles…
Come, let’s grow old together…
Happy Anniversary dear!
