Walk with me will you till moonlight glows
And we will talk of love and life
Walk with me, our hearts entwined
That bond we share as husband and wife.
And such merry times we both recall
Of times we spent in happy repose

Was kneeling before you the day I proposed.
The gaiety and laughter of our children
Made wondrous the path that we chose
For all of these years there has been only you
You were and remain my fine English rose.
And now that I find myself so much older
In recalling a life never dull
We struck out together as always we did
The excitement of living our lives to the full.
