Poetry Pleases: On Our 67th Wedding Anniversary

After 67 years of married life John Ayling found that his love for his wife grew ever deeper.

In 1932 when we were wed,
It seemed that all that could be said was said
When we our love and loyalty declared;
But though the many years that we've been spared
Our love with every passing day had grown,
Until, unmindful how the years have flown,
We find our lives are now so truly one
That one without the other is undone:
So now on this our anniversary,
I tell again how much you mean to me,
So lovely and so radiant in my eyes
You fill my heart with joy that never dies
True love like ours can never fade away,
But deeper grows with every passing day.
