To My Twin Sock
We started as a pair and that’s how it’s going to stay
Especially now we’re tying the knot, on our wedding day.
I will not end up in the washing machine, separated from my twin
But instead I’ll stick right by you, even when we go into spin.
I go with you to the dryer, or out upon the line
And as we’ve dried in unison, I know that you are mine.
I won’t hide inside a duvet, so that the toe stays dripping wet
But instead we’ll stretch out together, until we’re as dry as we can get.
Then it’s off into the basket, which is another perilous chapter
Until we’re paired up and off to the sock drawer for our happy ever after.
And we’ll snuggle up quite happily, because we were made to share
There’s one for you and one for me, and that makes us a pair!
Two Places At The Table
There was a little table
With one sturdy wooden chair
There wasn’t lots of space
But one person sat happily there.
There was one set of cutlery
And a single solitary plate
Ready for the quiet meal
Where one sat and pondered one’s fate.
Now there’s a slighter bigger table
And it’s in a room with a view
With all the necessary requirements
For a perfect meal for two.
No longer silent and solitary,
Two contented souls sit there
Contemplating what life might be like
If there were another chair.
Wherever you walk
Your impression is left;
You leave footprints all over my soul
You enrich my life
When once I was half
I now am most definitely whole.
Where you go I’ll follow
Today and tomorrow
Life’s journey together we’ll face.
And here on this road
We’ll share any load
On our journey to a happier place.
Love is like an evergreen, it never fades away;
Once love comes into your life, then it is here to stay.
It holds it’s fulsome colour throughout every passing season
Like true love being truly lovely, never needing any reason.
Hardy and resilient, it steadfastly keeps on growing
With all it’s graceful majesty, the true colour can’t help showing.
This everlasting colour symbolises you and me
And our marriage forms the framework for this hardy evergreen tree.
There was a spark, you stole my heart
And on my life you left your mark.
With just a grin, you drew me in
And our love story did begin.
I liked your style, you made me smile
I put your number on speed-dial.
You touched my cheek, my knees went weak
Tongue was tied, I couldn’t speak.
I felt so shy, you caught my eye
This was a feeling I couldn’t deny.
The kiss then came, I sighed your name
And hoped that it would happen again.
Now you adore me, in all my glory
And so began our true love story.
There’s a never-ending universe, that extends beyond the eye
And there are billions of people who lives simply pass us by.
But then there is the someone who, whose life purpose has a goal
Of finding their perfect other half; the one that makes them whole.
One soul made of patchwork, strands of our lives entwined.
One heart beating tirelessly, the rhythm of our lives defined.
One body standing confidently, with boundless energy thriving
One life that is made for living, and not just simply surviving.
