First day of the month I drag
My body down the station stairs
Sunny but chilly’s the verdict – where’s
The leafy summer gone, I gag
(A witticism awfully wet
But that’s as good as you’re gonna get)
Also at fifty miles per hour
I fly from Alison my love
But now reflect how life’s full of
Her presence – in my life a flower
Lovelier and more precious than
The Mona Lisa, an also ran!
Kinder, braver than them all
She goes about her day serene
But then I know the stress she’s seen
And yet she makes my life a ball!
That’s why my life and love I yield
To her complete. I’ll be her shield
Above all I’ll be her romance
And hold her firm and dance and dance
And all the future we’ll enhance!
