Twenty-Five Years, and Still You Are in Love by Nicholas Gordon

We were looking for poems for our parent's 25th wedding anniversary and found this lovely poem by Nicholas Gordon and thought we would pass it along to you and your visitors!

Twenty-five years, and still you are in love!
What river does not deepen as it flows?
Each day your love increases as it goes,
Nourishing the lands through which it moves.
The love that lasts is deeper far than passion.
Years pass and it abides beneath the light.
Few know the secrets of its dark delight,
Intent on all the toys that are in fashion.
Vivid lusts yield pleasures that soon cease.
Each year of love yields happiness and peace.
