Twenty years seems like such a long time,
Really it’s just a drop in the bucket.
Like a snowball rolling downhill gathering upon itself.
Days add to days, years to years, decades to decades.
All the small things that make up a life add together
Until one day looking back through the lens of memory,
You realise that you have shared so much together
you can no longer even imagine being apart.
Half a lifetime ago something wonderful happened.
We gazed at one another, exchanged rings, and said “I do”.
It may not have always been the smoothest ride,
But I would not have missed it for the world.
