The day we met


The day we met

The first time we met was a Saturday night
I was sure that this was love at first sight
You were sitting with your friends talking and giggling
When I got up to talk to you my heart was pounding.

The first words I say to you are ‘can I buy you a drink’
Then I walked away and gave you a wink
I walk over to her with a glass that’s full
And as she sipped her drink I tell her ‘your eyes are beautiful.’

I ask her what’s your name, she says its grace
I say you know you have the most wonderful face
If you be my girl I will never leave you I’m not a traitor
And by the way way my names John Slater
.
We soon get married
Then in grace a baby was carried
We then buy a house and move in together
Because we know our love will last for ever.

Amongst the flowers I
am alone with my pot of wine
drinking by myself; then lifting
my cup I asked the moon
to drink with me, its reflection
and mine in the wine cup, just
