Second Honeymoon

My mother’s funeral was today
I just left the funeral service
Dad took her death pretty hard
None of us saw it coming

Her death made me start to realize
Of how life is so precious and short
As I started to drive back home
I realized that I cannot waste anymore time

So I’m going to take my wife to the city,
Reserve a suite at the Hilton,
Order us a bottle of champagne,
And hold her tight in my arms

She will probably wonder
On why we are taking this trip
But when if it comes to that
I will just tell her:

“Sweetheart, I love you with all my soul
And we just need to get away
So sit with me here
And let us enjoy our second honeymoon.”

    James,, Stopping by to greet you and every other soup poet, with a special thank you comment, during this wonderful Thanksgiving season. Hope you do not mind the time I am taking to express my sincere appreciation for any support you have offered during the years, or time you have been here on the soup. I am deeply thankful and extend to you my best wishes for a happy and healthy Poetic Magical Thanksgiving Day. *Always & Forever, the Poet Destroyer; -*
