Four Little Letters

On which the world turns

Our love hit with a look

It did jerk us head over heel

One tiny zap all it took

A joy of ail we did not know we’d ever feel


A red hot bolt out of the blue

Did seal us soul to soul

Life came down to just me and you

With love and lust you did fill my hole


Days and days in the sack, we did rock n roll

So took up with play we did not even eat

Sad it did wain to a new, slow pace and role

A seal of hips, body, life, and soul none can beat


Such a bond does last life long

Low heat on an easy, safe burn

We walk, run, talk, hug, and hold on

Much time to dive deep and awe to earn


Off and on we have the odd fail and flop

When near does seem far and all’s naff

Much mess to take care of and tish* to mop

But when all is said and done it’s a tiny faff


Tho’ tis mean to say

I want to pass β€˜fore you

Lost soul mate … just nay, no way

No life to live nor owt** to do


I’d just as soon die

Than lose the love of my life

Tell me you’d cope and not cry

But let your joy of us be rife


Our love hit with a look

It did jerk us head over heel

One tiny zap all it took

An ail we did not know we’d ever feel


An ail we will ever n ever n ever feel

* tish is a word used in a nursing home I worked in years ago when, to maintain professionalism, we spelt backward the word we wanted!


** owt is a British slang term which means β€˜anything’, and is used most often in the north of England.
