No words, but a great Klezmer tune (scroll down to find it): Silver Wedding on the Manchester Klezmer site.

One of my favorite love songs is sung by Randy Travis (though I don't think he wrote it)

Forever And Ever Amen

You may think that I'm talkin' foolish
You've heard that I'm wild and I'm free
You may wonder how I can promise you now
This love that I feel for you always will be
Well you're not just time that I'm killin'
I'm no longer one of those guys
As sure as I live this love that I give
Is gonna be yours until the day that I die

CHORUS
Oh baby I'm gonna love you forever, forever and ever amen
As long as old men sit and talk about the weather
As long as old women sit and talk about old men
If you wonder how long I'll be faithful
I'll be happy to tell you again
I'm gonna love you forever and ever, forever and ever amen

They say time takes its toll on a body
Makes a young girl's brown hair turn grey
But honey, I dont care, I ain't in love with your hair
And if it all fell out well I'd love you anyway
They say time can play tricks on a memory
Make people forget things they knew
Well it's easy to see its hap'nin' to me
I've already forgotten every woman but you

CHORUS
Oh darlin' I'm gonna love you forever, forever and ever amen
As long as old men sit and talk about the weather
As long as old women sit and talk about old men
If you wonder how long I'll be faithful
Well just listen to how this song ends
I'm gonna love you forever and ever, forever and ever amen

Not specifically for a silver wedding but we like to sing this one as a duo when we are feeling cosy.

Bryan Bedford's "I'll sail no more" otherwise known as "Moored to this ring"

Moored to this ring I will not drift
Anchored here I'll stay
Within the shelter of your arms
Watch the ebb-tide drift away
The tide may wait for no man
But this man sails no more
I've found what I was seeking on this shore.

I'll sail no more, though breezes blow
I'll stay becalmed within these waters, I won't go away
I'll sail no more, my search is through
For the wonder that I found I found was you.

Moored to this ring I will not drift
Here I'll make my bed
Within the shelter of your arms
Bound by the words we've said
The light that shines within your eyes
To guide me safely here
The harbour light of blinding white, I will be near.

Moored to this ring I will not drift
I'll step onto this quay
I'll hold the hand that rules this land
Your landsman I will be
And though the skies may darken
When storm clouds hide your face
Know that I am with you, I've found my place.

Still five years to go but I wrote this anyway.

In the darkness of my night, you are the bright star glowing.
You're the golden sunrise at the dawning of my day
And throughout the daytime, you are the light that guides me
And the moon that graces all the world as the sunset fades away.

When the road is longest, you're the inn on the horizon
And when the dust cakes in my throat, you're the water to my thirst.
If my feet grow weary, you make the journey shorter
And as I reach my haven, you're the arms that greet me first.

Wherever I might lay my head, you're the pillow underneath it
And whenever I'm in trouble you bring succour to my plight.
You're the angel that stands guarding at my side when I am sleeping
And whatever foe confronts me, you're my courage for the fight.

You're today and you're tomorrow, my Christmas and my birthday
And as my life moves on, you're the beginning and the end.
When I doubt the truth of living, you're the child whose smile enfolds me
And though all the world's against me, I know you'll always be my friend.

I played this for a woman. who was 76, who while listening to it, had tears running freely down her cheeks!..and said, 'I've been married to Bill for 54 years, and you have no idea what this music is saying to me!!..What are you doing to me?'

So here it is for you:

The Beatles' "in my life" is much more understated, but touches the spot for me.

Theleveller, has that been set to music? I love it!

Carol, do you have 'Fire in the Lake'? I know the title does not sound like a love song (taken, loosely, from the I Ching) but the chorus goes

Change is all around me,
Change is all I see,
Change is all around me,
Change . . . is all I feel.
I still need to feel your love
Steady against the change.
I still love to feel your love
Persevere.

I love the word 'persevere' in reference to love. This is the song we are using for our renewal of our vows, after thirty years, combined with our daughter's wedding; she and her fiance feel family continuity is very important and they invited both sets of parents to renew vows at their wedding ceremony. I feel so honored.

Carol, thanks for getting back to me and letting me know how you liked it. I have another EXTREMELY beautiful love song, with deeper meanings than the surface..written by the same person and performed by the 'other' same person. ANY SONGWRITER that hears this, and catches the 'nut' in it, will indeed, not only get a blessing, but a lump in their throat as well!! I've played the DVD, for some musicians of all types, and once they 'get it',,it wrecks them...REPEATEDLY...so..here it is....

ENJOY!!!!!!!

Celtaddict, glad you like it. I've been playing around with tunes for a while and have just settled on how I think I want it to sound. Just a bit of fine tuning and it'll be there (I hope).
