You traveled through life to 50 years of happy wedded bliss Your treasure grew with golden gifts, to toast your happiness But the treasure that you value most isn't jewels, silver or gold But the love you have for each other, that has never grown old! Congratulations on your Golden Wedding Anniversary." - anonymous
