Hey All,
I need some help from the poets on Craftster. My DH and I are having a re commitment ceremony next month and I need help with this poem.
I made a wire tree of life for the cake topper and need a short quote/poem for the little card I am making for under it.

So far I thought,
Our Roots Run Deep
The branches Spread Wide ..

and then I get stuck after that, I know something about side by side would rhyme but it sounds kinda cheesy, I was shooting for something more deeper meaningful KWIM?
I even thought about just putting Our Roots Run Deep but I thought that too short.

Any ideas? 

ETA: I thought about "Storms make trees grow deeper roots" may be good as we split up last spring for a short while and this re commitment ceremony is important to our starting over.

I also found this one...

The tree of life
Is the miracle
Of silence, peace,
Love and oneness.

Here's a stab at it

Our roots run deep
  our pathways twist
But still our love is strong
We'll take a vow
   and brave the storms
That never our heads shall bow

For those who smile
  and shake their head
I can but add this line
'Tis such a shame you cannot share
   a love as great as mine.

The last verse was one I wrote for my husband to be 50 years ago. We are celebrating our anniversary this weekend. He is 18 years older than I am.
