One of the best writers (in my opinion) i look up to is my cousin Sherl. I wrote about her love story here: If It Ain't Love it Ain't Grand. She recently wrote a poem describing her own love journey..and how, in November, it will end and yet begin another chapter at the altar. So, in the hype of the Royal Wedding, I found it fit to post this love-filled poem. Enjoy!
Love is A Force ( A Love Letter)
There once was a man
Who got in a jam
For the girl he once had
Broke his heart pretty bad.
So the man went about
Looking for ‘the one’ like a scout
Dated some gurl who was stout (haha!)
Found his soul still in drought.
There once was a girl
Who got in a swirl
For the man whose arms she had furled
Caused her weary heart to get hurled.
So the girl went away
Watching out for the happy and gay
Dated some guy who was lame
Found herself tired of the game.
But the man found a chance
In what begun as a glance
The bugs in his gut made a dance
Oh how he was in a trance!
But the girl was too evil
She donned the cloak of a rebel
The bugs in her heart were on level
Oh how she tried to only be civil!
Though the man fell from his high horse,
The girl owed him a sevenfold remorse
My Venus always says ‘Love is a force.’
Try as you may, you cant alter its course.
And so came the laughter and tears
The moments piled on, counted in years
The man and the girl swallowed their fears
And the bells will all be what one hears.
Hard may be the road,
In the walk toward the “have and to hold”
And long may be the wait,
For the name imprinted on our fate
One thing I am sure
In love and affection I will never be poor
It’s funny how I call you baby,
But you’re the best man for a lady.
And lady lady, I might never ever be (haha)
But you sure as hell ought to marry me!

P.S. (So, I really need to turn the words My Venus into red, huh! hahaha! ) The photo above was taken during her Pre-Nup Shoot. She decided to take a weekend off and do her pre-nup at our province so she could be on my birthday. :D
