THE NIGHT I FOUND MY VALENTINE:
Twas a night in Novemeber,
My friend and I went dancing for fun.
We were dancing to the hits of the day.
Little did I realise the "Night" of my life had begun.
In walked two "Likely Lads",
I liked one from the start.
That was the memonet I fell in love,
He had completely stolen my heart.
They came over to us,
Spent the entire evening having fun.
I later told my friend,
"I'm Going To Marry That One.".
She told me not to be silly,
That we'd only just met.
I had a grin a mile wide,
And told her not to forget.
Forget our conversation,
In time to come.
I couldn't wait to show him off
To my loving mum..
Well we did marry two years later,
I wrote and told my friend.
She had not forgotten our conversation,
As her best wishes she did send.
We married on mum's birthday,
What a grand day indeed..
Had the reception at mum's home,
All had a great feed.
We had thirty-five happy years together,
Three great kids from our love.
Eighteen years ago God Took Him Home
To his home above
Gone but never forgotten:
