Yesterday was our wedding anniversary;
That's a long time for my sweet love
to put up with the likes of me.
you are patient
(oh, so patient with me)
and you are kind.
I don't know that I've ever seen you envious.
Maybe you've boasted a little
(when it's deserved ;-)
but you are not proud.
Rude? I think not!
You are definitely not self-seeking
and it takes a lot to make you mad!
You are as quick to forget as you are to forgive.
I know no one who rejoices in the truth like you.
You have always protected me,
and believed the best about me.
You have persevered when it would have been far easier
to walk away.
Thank-you for loving me so well.
