1. The Bountiful Bouquet

“Will you let me take your hand today?”
He pleaded with her as he shied away.
For all there was a shot in the dark,
But brought into light at the next mark.
And thus began the journey of two
As they marked their sands with a new debut.
And starting that very passing day
He gifted her a bountiful bouquet,
And he began to charmingly say:
“Everything's going to be okay.”

In May they shared their first coming time
When the two became true partners in crime;
And so began a tale told by two,
Looking out to the new coming view.
Together they sent their heart’s away,
To see if lights could last a rainy day.
Found complete for their wholeness to stay,
He handed her his bountiful bouquet
And he began to charmingly say:
“Everything's going to be okay.”

Fourteen months passed by and by from then
With many shared days held time and again-
‘Twas Valentine’s Day with colors red,
And though by chance some tears may have shed,
Much promise lied in the days ahead;
For as one they went wherever life tread.
Steadfast and awed in lover’s ballet,
He offered her his bountiful bouquet
And he began to charmingly say:
“Everything's going to be okay.”

 

Not long passed ‘til that ring had come

To assure each other what would become.

With beaming eyes they vowed their one kiss

And sealed their oath with but a promise.

Now facing life bound as one by love,

Ever singing songs of the mourning dove

Whether virtue or vice came their way-

He granted her a bountiful bouquet

And he began to charmingly say:

“Everything's going to be okay.”

 

Time slowly slipped between fingertips

As their children left leaving an eclipse;

No times were greater than what had gone,

But they both knew they couldn’t hold on.

Aged and gray the two wept tears that eve,

For they knew well there was one more to leave.

Counting all the days that went astray,

In tears he gave his bountiful bouquet,

And he began to charmingly say:
“Everything's going to be okay.”


On and on the two lovers endured;
No matter the struggle they stood secured.
No sickness nor weakness came to root,
For they ever were in hot pursuit.
They walked leaving footprints in the sand,
And continued on to the last sworn strand.
Even when dared by Death’s disarray,
Still he gave her a bountiful bouquet
And he began to charmingly say:
“Everything's going to be okay.”

“Please accept my bouquet of flowers,”
He uttered for their last passing hours...
She then firmly grasped the verdant stalks
Before she lay deep beneath the rocks.
She wept and cried as she glared at death,
But veiled it before he who still had breath.
She remembered the years they had spent,
"I'll tell you what all of these years have meant,"
And she began to charmingly say:
"Everything's going to be okay..."
 

Gray and aged, he caught the bouquet.
