Our Journey


Some talk of love between two folk

Like mist from silky streams

That gathers in the hollow

like gently flowing dreams



Some others don’t quite see it

They don’t have the same

They don’t see what’s special

And find it all quite lame



And then there’s me and you My Girl

We’ve been so long together

We’ve crossed uncharted waters

And faced all sorts of weather



And on our journey through the years

We’ve had our ups and downs

But to this day I share with you

Never did we drown



We weathered out the storms we faced

Some taken in our stride

Other storms near killed us

But "together" we survived



During this our journey

We took two more on board

Two fine and striking ship mates

Equally adored



Both our shining lights of joy

Our buttons strain with pride

They make their way across their seas

They’ve sailed upon their tide



We watch them sail beyond our sight

And slowly evening falls

Then gently in the distance

Our own time quietly calls



We sit, we chat, we laugh at things

We’re just us two again

We talk of all the times we've had

til two or three AM



But as I close this poem

Please hear what I now say

Never take for granted

The gift of life each day



For if like me you find her

The girl who you adore

You’ll want to live forever

In her arms her for evermore



If one day you look for me

and I too can't be found

fear not for I'll be with her

together safe and sound


For "My Girl"
