50th Wedding Anniversary

To honor me and their pa, our 4 kids are quite busy
Planning to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary
We've prevailed on them to save their money
And instead keep it to meet family necessity

But, "No!" they all answered back-
"This is our way to let the whole world know us
As grateful kids of wonderful parents who'd given us
Everything we needed in life to start us up

"You've reared us in simple and peaceful family life
You've put us in best schools for good education
You've let us travel with you-far and wide
You've shown us work ethics that guided us to success"

Those touching words from our kids makes us realize
That, as parents, we'd been watched in our ways
Not ever aware that their 8 eyes have focused on us
Now letting us know we're their role models in life

We allowed them to go on with the celebration
Reserving Renaissance Hotel's Grand Ballroom
Now all 4 of them are busy sending invitations
Designing party favors and colorful decorations

So, on with our golden anniversary celebration!
July 4, 2014, is 50 years from our wedding in 1964
Our kids have invited friends and relatives from afar
Surely, we look forward to a joyful renewal of vows!
