My husband and I, we go way back
We got married before he was sent to Iraq.
The desert was harsh, and I all alone
Wondering if he would even come home.
Over the summer our hopes would shift
As we both signed up for this game called Rift.
Before we knew it, we were saving the land
Both in Telara, standing hand in hand.
The nights weren't as lonely, the days were more bright
as I could sleep knowing he was holding me tight.
From Freemarch to Moonshade and Ironpine Peeks,
Telara was our home for so many weeks.
And though real life was harder to weather,
Rift was the thing that kept us together.
He was my knight, a tank clad in leather,
glimering daggers and wickedly clever
I was a mage, a dame soft and sweet
together any foe was hardly a feat.
A hero he is, in Rift and real life,
and I am so proud for being his wife
And Rift rid us all, of all our disparage
I darest say that Rift strengthened our marriage!
So thank you, Trion, for letting us play!
And I hope you will attend on our wedding day.
Aliza and Kanko, both full of glee
getting married for all of Telara to see!
