simple verse from a simple man


I remember a glance 

From across a great room 

That was teeming with people, 

A bride and a groom, 

How your eyes stilled the space 

And the crowd would dissolve 

All sound would subside 

As the world would revolve 

And the night would recede 

To a new morning’s dawn; 

Enticed by your charms 

Into orbit was drawn. 

I drink to remember, 

I drink in your debt, 

I drink to the hope 

That I never forget.
