Anniversary Poem

My Girlfriend Is Now My Wife

I have heard it said by many people including those close to me that my wife and I married young and lost all of the fun things of our youth. We married when we were 16 for my wife and 17 for me, which now has been over 30 years ago. Well to my wife Pammy, I hope you know I really have never looked back in regret because having you is so much more than I ever imagined it would be. With my wife, we have created a lifetime of wonderful adventures and memories, those who say we were too young have no idea what a true sharing young love could be. Commitment, friendship, love, devotion, sharing, caring, laughing and at times crying. I would not change a thing.

I Know My Life

My girlfriend is now my wife
It happened 30 years ago and changed my life
 
I have heard people complain as they age of what they may have missed
Well if they complain then that is for them, because for 30 years I have had your kiss
 
I know not of things I could have had in a life that is past
I do know that I am blessed with your love, a love that lasts
 
If I look back in time and say, "I missed something and I desire"
I think of your love and to say I would trade a thing would make me a liar
 
I could look back in time and say, "I could have had"
I had you, to want anything else would be just mad
 
I know as a young husband I gave up what some may feel were the best years of their lives
Well I gave up nothing, I feel sorrow for them, I had more because you are my wife
 
Yes, I know how to look back in time, I know my life
I would not change a thing because you are my wife
 
Regret, why should I do such a thing
For I am proud to wear my wedding ring
 
They had fast cars and fast times
I had you, a wife so very fine
 
What did they have that I did not
Well whatever it was I am sure it was not a lot

You are my past, my present, and my future
We have lived our past, you are my present, and I pray to be blessed with you in my future
 
I had more joy, more laughter, more love, and more pleasure
Because what I have with you is more than can be measured
