In nineteen seventy six on the sixth of December
Was the first day we met one I’ll always remember
I took her to the gaumont cinema to see Rollerball
Afterwards I walked her home and I felt ten foot tall
She asked me in to meet her mom and we had coffee
I knew as the night went on she was the girl for me
It’s now been over forty years and we are still happy.

A marvelous display of emotions as one is led upon a trail of magic moments felt and released by the author, each encased as a golden nugget within the authors heart. Emile.

We don’t forget when we fall in love. It is like a tale of sorts that bonds. My granddaughter was just in the play “Little Mermaid” It reminds me of how romance comes together. Aahhh... :)

1969 for me was a very good year, married March 1970, and to this present day, our love for each other is as strong as ever it was. Glad, and happy for you Tom. Mick
