I Did It My Way

It was Valentines Day many years ago Wasn’t a leap year that I do know Knelt by the bed and I said to him ‘Marry me mate I’m not living in sin’* Twenty-two years on and we are still wed Grab every chance it’s too late if you’re dead Life has a way of knocking us back Keep positive; stay on the right track Life is a journey we travel this way Live life to the full; cherish each day 10th June 2014 Written for Shadow Hamilton’s Contest ~I did It My Way ~ * poetic licence here - but he did say YES!

If a poet can't proclaim poetic license, then hell, we're in the wrong place! Nice post Jan, great job

Dear Jan, How wonderful that you had the confidence to ask him!! Congratulations on having a long-lasting marriage. (I think I'm a sheep for I can't think of one thing I did to buck the system.) Sending winning wishes to you! Love, Carolyn

Jan; This is a beautiful poem and I'm glad that you took a chance and did it your way. Your last stanza says it all and that is what I'm trying to do. Blessings..... Lucilla
