Your are my love but better than that, you are my friend. You have loved me and you have taught me and made me better. Our wedding was wonderful but our marriage is better. Five years ago you were part of my world but today you are my world.
If you want something to last forever,
you treat it differently.
You shield it and protect it.
You never abuse it.
You don’t expose it to the elements.
You don’t make it common or ordinary.
If it ever becomes tarnished,
you lovingly polish it
until it gleams like new.
It becomes something rare and special,
because you have made it so.
And it grows more beautiful and precious
As time goes by.
