The Golden Years : 12th June 1964 - 2014

The Golden Years
12th  June 1964 - 2014

The setting was a country church,
Euphoric and dignified,
The second Friday of the month,
There came a young June bride.

She sauntered slowly down the aisle,
In radiant white, was she,
Preceded by her bridesmaids,
Her flower girl made that three.

Beth, Gail and Linda entered,
Adorned in fine mint green,
Thereafter, came Patricia,
'Twas the finest sight e'er seen.

While waiting at the altar,
Escorted by his three,
Stood Glen, Ross, Carl and Murray,
Glen's face conveying glee.

Then there, the young Pat Karges,
In finery so grand,
Stood proud with Glen Doerbecker,
And vowed to take his hand.

In sickness, health and poverty,
All these you will have known,
Glen and Pat were bonded
And seeds of love were sown.

So now, this love that started,
Has been with you for aye,
Hence you are celebrating

Your Golden Wedding day.


Karges - Doerbecker

Pausing for a moment, thinking of the years gone by, 
Astounded how they vanished, like the twinkling of an eye, 
Thankful for the memories, of  your family, friends so true,
Relying on your Maker to help to see you through,
In His love eternal, a life for Him you've lead,
Contented in the knowledge you are living, as He said,  
Infusing love eternal from deep within your soul,  
Always in amazement, at achieving this great goal.

Growing closer, deeper, morphing into one,
Love remaining fervent, with the rising of new sun,
Every blessing counted,  to each other, you belong,
Now five decades later, your zeal remains as strong.
