Two Lovers IV - A Wedding
"I'm gonna marry you someday"
Her Lover jokes with her
They drive in her fancy car, she's
Amused by tipsy words
"Don't be silly, my young drunk friend"
She shoots back while he grins
"Just watch, Sweetie. Just watch...someday"
He says, chuck'ling again
He says earnestly, "You know that
Big wedding feast was neat.
I have never seen one like that.
Thank you for bringing me"
They stop at a red light. She smiles
Softly at her young beau
Proud to bring him to her culture
To let him get to know
She reaches out and holds his hand
He brings hers to his lips
His eyes a little glassy from
Refreshments he had sipped
"I'll tell you what! That shot your mom
Gave me was pretty strong
It tasted just like licorice
I think I'll feel it long"
She laughs, "Yeah be careful with that
'Twill knock you on your @ss"
The red light changes back to green
She stomps hard on the gas
"Damn, Girl, don't go and kill us now
I am too young to die"
She gives him her best tough-girl smirk
And the side of shining eyes
They talk and laugh on the way back
To her old childhood home
Reliving the festivities
While warnth of Lovers grows
The dancing and the tip money
Flying all through the air
The little old man whose crying
Touched everyone there
The way all guests knew her Lover
As her "Irish" young man
The only blue-eyed guy in sight
They kept beers in his hand
The hospitable welcome
Was quite touching to him
But some of the young men in there
Tried to look right through him
She's a bit uncomfortable
When he jokes about that
While all were very welcoming
There was slight tension had
But she shrugs it out of her mind
When they get to her house
The Lover's a tad unsteady
As he tries to get out
Of the car in the large driveway
She goes to give a hand
It turns out it was just a trick
He pulls her down to land
In his lap in the car's seat and
Starts to give her kisses
Her heart's routine of losing the
Couple beats it misses
They respond to each other as
They always seem to do
"When they are asleep" she whispers,
"I'll come and ravish you"
His big smile of young eagerness
A kiss, another hug
And the adorable way she
Can make him look so smug
She pulls him out from the car as
More kisses invade her
She fends him off to go inside
She'll make them all up later...
