Flowers and love songs are expected things
And verse like this (but better) when the talk
Concerns romantic love but let’s not baulk
To mention rougher happenings life brings
To love whose romance has the depth of ours –
The rows, the bloody screams, momentary hate
The sweat getting and raising kids, the wait
For work to come, no cash, the way hope sours
No problem! Sounds a lot but just a sauce.
To the great ten course meal which we two share
What would love be without the cause to care,
Occasional pain, forgiveness, even remorse?
Here is the market place of life’s events
We spend for love and do not deal in pence.
