Five Golden Rings

Two different lives, from different worlds, were meant to be as one
He became her guiding star, and she became his shining sun

Once they had been strangers, but love brought them together
He had never fathered children, but quadruplets called her Mother

He brought along a gentle love, and was sure enough to give it
She brought along a crazy life, and taught him how to live it!

The day arrived, when they would wed, excitement filled the air
On the fifth Yule day, they said their vows, and end to end were there......
The children, four, came through the door, to crowd the alter floor

He pulled 5 rings, a diamond gleamed, upon her finger worn
And 4 small rings, upon 4 chains, around their necks, he swore
to love them all, and make them whole, and give them all he owned

5 Yuletide Days, 5 gifts he gave,.... 5 times the love, ...and more
