Six years ago I promised to love you forever. I didn’t know then that my love could grow stronger every day. Our lives are very different than when we met, a long, long, long time ago. We’ve shared so much laughter, lying in bed late at night. You’ve been my rock, and I’ve been the shoulder for you to cry on.
Six years ago, my dad was in the hospital, and we were so tired that we used the elevator rugs to keep up with the days. You went to sleep with your head on the table at dinner the night of our wedding. We had not even imagined the whole “living in This Old House” time in our life together.
Six years ago, we were different people. Oh, we thought we were at the place where love is at its greatest point, but we were wrong. Now is that time, and tomorrow will be more so, and tomorrow’s tomorrow even more.
Six years ago our lives officially were joined together. I look forward to sixty more.
I love you. Happy Anniversary
