Twenty Five Years

Twenty five years
That pass in a nod
In a wink
Whizz by in the blink of an eye
Quicker than drinking
Before you can think

Twenty five years
Jammed to the rafters
With boxes of laughter
And crates of adventures
And loving hugs crammed into corners
and crevices
Shoved down the backs of sofas
And hoarded in cupboards
In nooks and in crannies
Momentos and memories
And even the kitchen sink
Is filled with flowers long gone
Black-eyed Suzies and yellow roses
But their perfume and colours
still lingering on.

Twenty five years
Who would have expected
The fun and the joy
To have lasted so long?
The stories we made, the music
We played, the melody still going strong

Twenty five years
And the past grows and grows
And each month overflows, and each day spills
Into the next like a song you can’t lose
Showtime of new shoes,
Tears in the shade
But fun in the sun when you ain’t got the blues
Such a shame that the memories fade
But the game carries on
New memories made
Our marriage just doesn’t feel old
Twenty five years, we’ve the silver
Now the thrill of going for gold

I love this it feels like a song, particularly the idea of keeping all those moments in different places.
