You’ve blessed my life a scant thirty five years
In your fifty five spins round the sun.
Spiraling circles of laughter and tears
Celebrate you as most glorious one.
Salute great beauty that comes from within
As it shines in your dark eyes, form and lips.
Great soulmate supreme life began again
As my ego and self-lies you did strip.
So few men have known, quite rare is the gift,
Of a lifelong, head-over-heals, sweet love.
Through our small spats we’ve avoided deep rifts
As you guide me with steel hand in soft glove.
Fifty five down, who knows how more to go?
Life spent with you equals win, place and show.
