This Day

Life events

Change one’s direction continually

Births, deaths,

Annotated by birthdays, graduations, marriages, divorces

The playing cards we our all dealt

Seem to have been distributed so haphazardly

You and I are no exception

“In good times and bad, in sickness and health”

Has always applied

Those times and days will not end till we do

But today we again contemplate


Too many times we have listened as loved ones

In their waning moments have spoken

Of ones they have missed and miss

And now we miss them

It has to be today my sweet love

That we make our lives

As we want them to be

That we commit to each other

As we did so many years ago

Let’s not let another day go by

We might regret

Let This Day be Our Day
