The Beautiful Way was read out by me on my Wedding Day in May 1997. Looking back I would say married life has been more like the previous three verses than it has been a beautiful way. My mum likes this poem and my parents' marriage was more 'The Beautiful Way' than mine ever was. The below picture and poem were done by Amy and me for my parents' Golden Wedding Anniversary which they celebrated in June 2012. It now feels like they got this celebration in just in the nick of time, as my dad died the following year, in January 2013.
