Twenty Years Together

By Julia Shaw

May 2019

Two people met many years ago,

Their hearts would soon embrace,

They wouldn’t let each other go,

Love could not be erased.

They married in a garden fair,

With flowers all abounding,

Their love they promised to always share,

While family watched surrounding.

Now twenty years have passed away,

And still, their love is growing.

They’ve passed through many weary days,

But e’er their love they’re showing.

Because two people fell in love

And married one summer day.

God above, has sealed their love

With children here to stay.

Joseph, Nehemiah, Jonathan, and Anna

Have come to their lives to bless.

Four children and no more, Hallelujah, Hosanna!

Their home’s no empty nest.

They’ve been through bitter days of pain,

When hearts grew sad and stressed,

But love stayed true and never rain

Could harm such love possessed.

I pray that all their coming life,

Their love will always be

As sure and steadfast, without strife.

For love’s the heavenly key.
