As those of you who have followed my poems know, I often write because of something in my life stirring me to comment.
Quite a number of years ago my life long friend married for a second time. Both he and his lady had grown children and I chided him how someone as plain as he could attract such a lovely lady.
Seriously though, I saw his happiness and wanted to write something for them that may perhaps touch them in later times. This man is the wisest, most honourable person I have ever known and I count myself fortunate to count him as a friend.
We look for laughter, happiness and life.
Don’t seek a husband, nor a wife.
Life alone can be such fun,
considering only ever one.
One’s own company can grow terse;
from tiny cradle to coal‑black hearse.
Trying to find our own soul‑mate,
just like waiting at the pearly gate.
Yet we seek to ever find
love to bring a peace of mind.
Long ago, another life.
She a husband, he a wife.
Issue from the unions grown,
one and one and two alone.
Her son and daughter bound in love,
his two sons from heaven above.
Life’s strange journey onward roamed,
each parent found themselves alone.
These children born of different love,
at once apart but not above
finding family in the other
children of a different mother.
Love, look forward; ever on.
Happiness and joy for Marie and Ron.
