Pearl Anniversary

An anniversary is a time to cherish,

Savour two lives with hardly a blemish.

Thirty is more than just a number,

As it best represents a house well in order.


Anniversaries are but cursory,

As time becomes an adversary,

We view enchantingly from the periphery,

Two endearing lives so celebratory.


What they stand for we strive to aim.

When fame is the name of the game,

Compromise not on your values to make a name,

For it would eventually cost you your game.


When love calls for a celebration,

A partnership of trust has no better potion,

With a mixture of tolerance, tenacity and dedication,

For 30 years and more, to set things in motion.
