The sunlight on the water

Reflected in her smile

And when I got on bended knee

The twinkle in her eye.


I was so very nervous

Although I tried to seem so bold

But the tears trickled from my eyes

When I slipped on the ring of gold.


The earth stood still at that moment

And my heart thundered in my ears

Until she said Yes she’d be mine

For the remainder of our years.


Now my life is almost done

And my youth I can barely remember

But I will never forget the sheer happiness

Of our wedding that September.


As my heart begins its final slowing

And you clutch my hand

My mind returns to that magical day, and


The sunlight on the water

Reflected in her smile

And now as I start to fade

The sadness in her eye.
