bruce and i are getting married on july 11 — two days before our 30th anniversary … we were never big on the marriage bandwagon (see “i don’t want to get married” on this site under “poetry”) … but we’ve come around …

this is a lyric, henry krieger wrote the music for a song for our friends john and marcia goldman who were celebrating their 25th anniversary … of course, my inspiration was bruce … the song will close our wedding ceremony — performed by our friends nick cearley and eric lesh

 

people ask us how we’ve lasted
so many couples don’t survive
like a feast to one who’s fasted
i can’t wait ‘til you arrive

reviewing years
of every-daying
too rich and full
to comprehend
i sum it up
by humbly saying
i’m married to my best friend

yes, married to my best friend
no company i’d rather share
i know that the laughs
and adventure won’t end
i’m married to my best friend

i am grateful fate was smiling
on that day when we first met
ever since we’ve been compiling
memories we won’t forget

we’ve weathered storms
we’ve kept on going
we’ve held the road
each twist and bend
and you’re the reason
i keep growing
i’m married to my best friend

yes, married to my best friend
no company i’d rather share
i know that the laughs
and adventure won’t end
i’m married to my best friend

    Congatulations on your wedding.

    For some reason, your email landed in an email account that I seldom use but I found it today and have been watching the videos. I’m so happy for you both.
