Our Love Is One That Will Last

Updated on February 11, 2012

Mom & Dad


Last day of school


Dad and his first little baby




Mom, birthday boy, & me


They said my eyes did sparkle

My smile shone oh so bright

“You’re in love, you pretty girl”

“You beam with so much light”.

The smile is only half of it

Not much longer, then they’ll know

The secret I’ve been dying to share?

I married my best friend a month ago!

Last day of school, I can feel it now

Graduation is right around the bend

Tell them we’re married, say goodbye

and then our life can begin.

We’ve got it planned, a perfect life

A house and maybe three little kids

A beautiful family all our own

tucked safely behind a white picket fence.

First will be a brown-haired girl

She’ll fill our life with so much glee

Ten perfect fingers, ten little toes

We’ll give her the name of Kathy.

The next bundle of joy will be early

A preemie with platinum white hair

A tiny angel, but she’ll be fine

Little Lisa with skin so fair.

Daddy will get his boy next

On his birthday, he will be born

“A chip off the old block” they will say

when Earl Jr. is delivered one August morn.

Oh, the times we’ll have, so much love

I’m glad I said yes when he asked

The road to the future will start soon

Our love is one that will last.

Our Love Is One That Will Last


Forever After

Death was the only thing that separated my parents. On February 23, 2001 my dad lost his beautiful bride. His love for her will never die.

      justateacher: To experience that kind of love for a second time, your mother was truly blessed!

      You captured the marriage of my mom and dad...and like your parents, the love only ended when my father died. My mom was lucky. She met another wonderful man and had that great love a second time - and that one ended only when my mother passed away...

      And both times, the love never really died...

      You made me cry...but in a good way :)

      Gypsy, sorry I made you cry! My dad has never dated or even thought about marriage again. He told her on her deathbed that she was his one and only. So many people don't get this and still try to fix him up! He still visits her grave almost every day.

      Thanks for the votes!

      Voted up and beautiful! This was so wonderful. Savored each word and it brought tears to my eyes. My mom and dad had this same kind of love and when he died she never married again.

      Billy, thanks for the very sweet comment! I can't take all the credit for this one. I think my mother helped me with it because it kind of wrote itself today!
