I Do

Ladies do you ever regret saying the words I do
Do you wish that you had stayed single brought your kids up the same way to
Gentlemen have you ever regretted going that bit too far
Do you sometimes wish you had held onto the bike or the car?

Or have you found that thing in life that we all look for
The love of a good person that will warm you to the core
The feeling of relaxation whenever you get the chance
The time you might get to have that one slow dance

The time you may have for that moment of true love
The time when life is peaceful not just push and shove
For in those times I'm sure that we all look up to heaven above
Remember being able to say I do because of love

Love is the very reason we are drawn by the heart
The reason we will marry and never ever part

    Love the poem and yes we all have regrets in things we should have or could have done. But all in all I can say that 40 years of marriage has had ups and downs but it's the ups that count. Love stays forever and hopefully never dies. Nicely done on this write. love phyl
