On Your Silver Anniversary

Today as both of you look back
with happiness and pride
Upon the twenty five years
That you've spent side by side,
May every memory that you share
Of dreams you've seen come true,
Help make this special Silver day
A happy one for you!

In 25 years together
You've shared so many things
That's why this very special Anniversary brings
To you, a wish that love,
Laughter, joy, contentment too
Will be yours to share throughout
The years ahead of you!
