Remember When?

Here’s a poem I wrote for my wife. All the events mentioned (including the dolphin) actually happened.

Remember when we danced all night
I’d never held you so tight
T’was then I knew we fit just right
Remember when?

Remember when we walked down the isle
The life before us shown in your smile
It all was perfect for that little while
Remember when?

Twice you endured the pain of birth
You made me more than I was worth
Our daughter and son you brought forth
Remember when?

Remember when she walked down that isle
And held her husband in her smile
You and I cried all the while
Remember when?

Our son took his love on a sail that day
While the sunset glowed across the bay
And proposed to her where the dolphins play
Remember when?

I once said I’d love only you
But with our children my love grew
And even more with grandkids too
Remember when?

Now we’re old, but our hearts are light
And it all started that first night
When we knew we fit just right
Remember when?

    I hope one doesn’t need a website to sign up for your blog. A website for me to create and update would definitely be a bridge too far!
    I loved this amazing poem which drew a tear or two. Your website is truly beautiful. Serene, uncluttered with space enough to frame each piece of work as though a painting. Thank you for sharing.
