Our love has not been an easy love,
But it is a strong and enduring love.
It came upon us in the eyes of youth,
But somehow, even then, we knew the truth.
Many trials have filled our life,
But I never gave up on being your wife.
Even today, when I see your face,
My heart still begins to race.
I wouldn’t go back and change a single day,
I believe it was God’s plan for us to love this way.
Please know, forever and always, you are in my heart,
And I will proudly be your wife ‘til death do us part.
