It was a cool December night, The twenty-first to be exact,
when we met at the Christmas Party with people I didn’t know.
You were the one that caught my eye, and I winked at you in fact.
In minutes we were gone, driving down the highway to a brand new life.
Was it days or was it weeks before you moved in with me? I don’t know.
They all scoffed when we married in six months and I became your wife.
You were funny when our Crystal came and you would tickle her little toe
and with Alex you were a seasoned dad and held him confident and proud.
Max became your shadow, watching all the things that you would do.
And we all grew up in a happy loving family, some people called us loud.
It stayed that way for thirty years and i still say, ‘Thank you for being you.’
