Today is my beloved parents’ 25th Silver Wedding Anniversary!
It’s a special day, and I would like to give them a small tribute through a poem. Through these 25 years, they have met with struggles and successes alike, and through it all, one thing that never changed, is the love they have for each other. After work, when they come back home, without fail, both of them sit together at the breakfast table and share each other’s day. They shared the good, the bad and all the grays that happened that day, while they sipped on a cup of coffee or tea, having no secrets. Nothing makes me happier than to know that, no matter what goes on in the world, or with each other, they have a strong commitment, love and trust in each other. I can honestly say, through all these years, I have never seen two people more in love with the other and two people who are each other’s best friend. I love you both very much, and I thank you deeply for showing me what true love looks like. Wishing you many, many, more wonderful years together.
Cheers, Mom and Dad (Anbu and Edin)!
The Silver Crown
Once upon a time in a land far, far, away,
There lived, Edin, a brave, handsome, young, man.
He worked hard and let nothing get in his way.
With humility, he bowed to God’s plan.
He read books and sought knowledge,
He worked out and became chiseled,
He became an Engineer after college,
He became Mr. Coimbatore and the crowd whistled.
He soared the skies as a fighter pilot,
He charmed the folk with his speech.
For him many a girls formed a riot,
But for a Princess he did beseech.
As his greatest gift, God did create,
Such a Princess, Anbu, who surpassed all other.
Although she grew up on a golden plate,
She was down to Earth like no other.
Her beauty was soft and delicate,
Her heart, pure and just.
Her speech was kind and eloquent,
She captured with her angel dust.
For knowledge she did thirst,
After college, as a teacher she did serve.
In everything she did, she became versed.
Her love was something to preserve.
Upon seeing this fair Princess,
Our Edin became spell bound.
For her hand he sought fearless,
As he knew he has found something profound.
Surrounded by family and friends,
They became Husband and Wife.
In tying the knot they donned a new lens.
To journey together, in this walk of life.
Through the time, the tears were few,
The laughter abound,
They went to three from two.
Their life became a joyful parade ground.
Through struggles and triumphs,
They remained together,
They knew their love will overcome all trials.
They couldn’t go a day without the other.
Twenty five glorious years has passed,
Reaching this milestone is not slight.
Their bond has proven to last,
And it shines strong and bright.
Their love has made the kingdom glow,
Their commitment, sacrifice, and care too,
And this day the Heavens bestow,
A Silver Crown, which is rightfully due.
With great happiness we all exult,
To wish this couple a journey sustained.
In another twenty five years we will exalt,
This stellar couple with a Golden Crown, proclaimed.

Thanks for the visit! Cheers!
