That loving cup

Money through my fingers slipped
So foolish my youthful ways
The sun came up each morning
I wasted away my days

Drink lubricated my life
Laughter echoed in my ear
Girls they came and they did go
But not one to hold that dear

Until she did come along
Whose eyes shone like the stars
But just shook her head at me 
She was Venus I was Mars

Persisting, she gave a nod
What fool I'd been that's for sure
And just how could I have missed
Seeing such beauty before

We found that we were a match
What rich world now opened up
Filled my mind as ne'er before
So we drank that loving cup

What wealth of love did we find
As I lay there on her breast
We're married now, what fine day
Sure our love will stand the test

  11. And that is the core of most Romance novels. I should know. I've studied them extensively. :)

    I skipped 3WW this week due to a timing problem - ie. overtime at work.
