Forty three years of marriage and still you make my heart beat strong I never wanted to be anything else but your wife and loving song Together we walked, jogged and trotted but most of all we danced, to the rhythm of our first hello. Every loving act was a show of love; When we were young we danced between sleepless nights and drank the brew of life as if it were a fox trot of maelstrom haze; Then the kids left home and we found ourselves alone again, Phonographic unused cylinders of time crooned again with love songs from Edith Piaf; You wrapped your arms around my waist and gave me a beginners taste Life had been good to us but oh how we lived it in such haste..., Then we got a second chance, and we did it just so losing ourselves on the living room floor, we danced like newly weds on their wedding day; That was the last time we danced together without goodbyes, today all I own is an old phonograph, and yesterday's slow sighs.

Mystic Rose Rose, Somewhere I hear Edith singing 'Non, Je ne regrette rien. 'That was the last time we danced together without goodbyes, today all I own is an old phonograph, and yesterday's slow sighs.' Life is beautiful, holding on to best memories through poetry. -Richard
