Well, my Sweet Rose,

The children have come and gone,

And we continue on our journey together.

I can still feel the beauty; our commitment to Love,

As the light winds carry our happiness in their aroma.

So far we’ve dined and tangoed at the fiesta’s,

Reclined into our hammock with vodka and coke.

Un cognac pour vous; un cognac pas mois aussi.

I feel so glad that we’ve travelled harmoniously,

And give thanks for accompanying me all the way.

There have been twists and turns, my darling,

Some spirals; an occasional bump on this endless sojourn,

But, all in all, it’s been a wonderful ride.

It feels so nice to be with you! What an amazing voyage!


We’ve caressed and danced; drank from the Fountain of Love,

While sipping from the Chalice of desire and enchantments.

And though at times it’s been cold and raining,

And your hair dishevelled, you looked even more beautiful!

Let us renew our bond today. This spoken yet unspoken awe;

This magical ‘feel awesome but dare not name’

Realm of speechless Bliss-Delight; This Pulse of Being!

We travel as one and if for some reason peace eludes us,

Then it is only temporary,

For at the appointed time it will come again.

Love radiates the life of harmony, brightens the Spirit,

Conquers all that seek to obstruct its flow.

I have tried to share and remain faithful to this Truth,

And you have supported me in our travails.

I have taken shelter, like a firefly, in your sweet flame,

And my Heart has fluttered and thrilled with your inspirations.

It has been a wonderful road!

Love is the root; the foundation of all we cherish and hold dear,

And we have stuck together,

Only because of this fiery, yet all-nourishing Delight.

Now timeless … timeless … timeless … is the moment;

Within the kernel of this emotion flows the Gratitude of God,

Of our children, and my pennies worth of thankfulness.

We have been filled to the brim and our cup runs over,

And it is not ours to understand.

Let us, together, aspire to know the Lover, the Possessor of Love,

To bathe ourselves in reverence … in Light,

Lost In the quintessence of this splendour ... be Free.

      Manatita, this would make for a heart-felt anniversary card, or the perfect sentiment for a wedding vows reaffirmation. Just beautiful!
