Limericks for Your 50th Wedding Anniversary

Updated on April 13, 2017

The marriage of my Mom and my Dad

lasted longer then any quick fad

relationship with roots

with millions of off shoots

a fifty year stint is not half bad.

To have lived many different places

supplying our needs, meeting new faces

with your children in tow

provided home to grow

remembering all the embraces.

In pine trees and the desert alike

you watched your children riding their trike

together you raised us

every need more or less

as we moved from our trike to our bike.

Even though years brought many a fight

you both endured with all of your might

to find the right answers

in sickness the right cures

provided a bed, room, and a light.

Now your children have grown to adults

you love and support them through their faults

still side by side today

while your grandchildren play

hold your hands in sunshine, to exalt.
