A love in verse


Performed by
Pearl Mackie

When I was young, my bells were rung

For impossible adventures

It’s not the same, no bells proclaim

When you’re sixty-six with dentures.

But I don’t really care at all

For I have you and you’re my all

A subtler sound the years have found

I hear it in my heart

The things we’ve done, the love, the fun

Set all old dreams apart

Regret? I feel there’s nothing dafter

For I have you and I hear laughter. 



A surly sod never content

Well almost never sad to say

Not that strife is his intent...


We fall out sometimes 

And make up and kiss

I put it in rhymes...
