Deep is the love of those who have walked,
Down the marital path of life,
Where, together they have striven to lighten the load,
By lessening each other's strife.
Blessed are those who have grown strong,
With the adversities they meet,
Who struggling together have solved a way,
Instead of accepting defeat.
Memories they share and re-live again.
Through the years, as a working team,
They have watched the wants and needs of men
Arise, to new heights supreme.
Fortunate are they who have escaped the scythe,
That severs our earthly stay,
And have know the depth of an enduring love,
That deepens, as life fades away.
