On 3rd December 2013 I posted the lyrics of a waltz I wrote to Much Better Half to mark our fifty years of marriage. In fact, those lyrics refer to our first meeting that took place fifty eight years ago today.
Once a young lad, while still as a teen
Met up with the most striking girl
that he had ever seen,
Merry and bright, complexion most fair,
So startling a contrast
against her deeply midnight hair.
Squeezed behind seats in a tiny car,
Went out on a drive
which was not all that very far –
As it turned out, would both of them take
Out onto the edge
of a picturesquely pretty lake.
They chatted and found
that their dreams were in tune,
Then went out together,
and it was quite soon
They had become inseparable;
They tarried, but then they married,
And so are they, still –
Through half-century it carried,
And so, always will!
I will find my recording of the waltz music and add a link to this post in due course.
