Archive Sunday – The Way it Was

So young and naive

 in love, we believed

met at the altar

never to falter

said I do, I do, I love you

 Too soon it faded

our ties vacated

ah, so sad, too bad

  it’s time to close the door

 open windows give more

Life’s too short to wait

 I’m not one to hate

don’t like feeling so blue

I bid adieu, said toodle-oo

time to start life anew

So shoo to the blues

it’s my turn to choose

as I embark on each day

 I pave my own way

 I’m doing it my way

my aim’s a future so bright

wishing for peace and light

amid the bright and sunny

amongst the witty and funny

ah, the color of golden honey

    I am amazed how we choose our mates (“in love”) at an age when we know little of ourselves, and expect it to last forever.

      Me too, VJ! I admire couples that celebrate anniversaries in the double-digits, whether married or not married.

    There is something to be said for not rushing where fools will tread.
    I almost made and ‘I do’ error… glad I called it quits before tying that knot!
    Happy now with what I’ve got! On the forever road 😀
