44? 48? 51?

Forty-four years ago we married;
Soon forty-eight years ago we kissed;
But fifty-one years and soon we wrote:
Two lives so intertwined so long so well
No one understands but you who hold
This bond so fast together and I
Who clutch so tight in my own way;
And so we love and so we live
In love for life so well so fierce
So fine — so forty-four or eight or fifty-two:
So far, so good, my love, my life.
