Happy Anniversary to My Sweetheart



by Pete Codella (bio)

My wife and I have been married for 13 years this week. We met in a singles ward in Orem, Utah a few years after both of us graduated from BYU. We have spent most of our married life living in Henderson, Nevada, but have also lived in Orem, Holladay and Bountiful, Utah. We've been blessed with two very different and wonderful children.

We're celebrating our anniversary with a trip to Florida. I'm speaking at a public relations conference and then we're spending a few days together, just the two of us. Every now and then a couples escape is in order, don't you agree?

Rather than buy jewelry like diamonds or pearls, this year I've opted for writing her a song. I decided it was a more personal gift. She'll always have that part of me and my thoughts on our time together will forever be preserved.

I'll surprise her with the song on our anniversary. She has no idea I've been working on it. So fun!

I'm sharing the song and the lyrics here as a tribute to my beautiful, loving and perfect-for-me wife.



Love That Can Last

Do you remember our first kiss?
That’s when I knew.
I only dreamed I’d end up with
Someone like you.

You were the right one I was waiting for.
I don’t know how I ever lived before.

I can’t imagine my life without you,
Now that you’re here with me.
I searched forever for this kind of love.
Sometimes it seems like a lifetime.
Sometimes it feels like it’s just a dream.
I would give everything for what we have.
A love that can last.

So many memories through the years.
The joy we’ve found.
And somehow we made it through the tears.
We’ve held our ground.

A million miles could never keep us apart.
You know you’ll always have the key to my heart.

I can’t imagine my life without you,
Now that you’re here with me.
I searched forever for this kind of love.
Sometimes it seems like a lifetime.
Sometimes it feels like it’s just a dream.
I would give everything for what we have.
A love that can last.

I will give everything for what we have.
A love that will last.
