For Forever and a Day
Two hearts joined by laughter,
A couple of Lovers, jokers, sharers;
A Christmas eve abroad I asked you to marry;
A sketch, a poem, a tear, “really?”
So a date in March was set to save,
An Autumn eve to celebrate.
There was a great deal to plan,
50 calls for celebrants, 20 for bands,
There were flowers too,
Cake, rings and the shoes.
With tears, laughter and support,
Our momentous day arrived.
However beautiful the view,
It could not compete;
With the beauty I saw
We chatted, we shivered,
We laughed and we joked.
With a ring, a kiss, a dance and a wave,
We sailed away
For forever and a day.
