To catch that pretty girl's eye


It is difficult

To catch that pretty girl’s eye

And to smile at her


It is difficult

To be the first one to make

That very bold move


It is difficult

To find those pesky buttons

With trembling fingers


It is difficult

Not to want to eat her up

But say words of love


It is difficult

Not to upset her parents

Nor make a mistake


It is difficult

Not to look too nervous

On your wedding day


It is difficult

To have that first argument

And make up after


It is difficult

Not to shed a tear of joy

With the first baby


It is difficult

To farewell to your children

As they leave your home


It is difficult

To lose the one you so love

And not shed a tear


It is difficult

Not to remember the bliss 

Of being married

  1. All these difficulties! In the end, though, they seem to be worth it.

  2. A memory that should be kept and treasured..the trembling fingers are poignant..looking back can feel like that.

  3. It is important throughout life to remember that things are constantly changing. Easier said than done, especially in a society that does its best to convince us that there is some place of eternal bliss, if only we can find it. Although change can be painful, stasis is death.

  4. Ah yes... difficult steps along the road of life... but ones that were well worth it, no doubt.

  5. It is difficult not to move on. Life is for living.

  6. Life can be difficult but I'm pretty sure Mr Newton would have pointed out that every difficulty has an equal and opposite simplicity!
