This is the anniversary of the day
Of days, for us, when we with faith and hope
Fared forth together; solemn and yet gay
We faced the future, for life's upward slope
Was joyous going, and we never thought
Then, that there might be worries -- hours of pain
And sleepless nights that left one overwrought --
That loss would often come instead of gain.

But looking back, the time has not seemed long,
Although the road, for us, was sometimes rough. . .
We have grown quiet and the buoyant song
Once in our hearts sings low, and yet enough
Of loveliness still lives to make amend
To us, for all the ills life chose to send.
