It’s that time of the year again, the anniversary of the first time I contacted the girl who would become my wife. By tradition, I write her a poem and send it to her an email with a poem last thing at night on May the 1st, and she is not allowed to read it until May the 2nd, (since I sent the original fateful email on the first, and she read it on the second). This time, I’ve recorded it as a song, which you can find below:
There Was a Girl
There was a girl whose name brought joy
To a once so lonely boy;
Now that joy is multiplied
That she is at his side.
Now many more does she delight
With her presence, at the sight
Of all she does to bless the lives
Of those close to her heart.
So now upon this special day
With fondness look my way I pray,
Take pride in what we’ve both become,
We two now joined as one.
