Howdy. We've moved from Cayce, but St. Elizabeth of South Rose Hill or Lizette de Waccamaw de Sud just don't do it for me.

My muse came through

(#3 from the 8-things meme) And here's the song for this weekend's wedding reception:

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Starting Forever Again


1.
He stands at the altar and
looks up the aisle
He looks pretty decent -
blue jacket, white tie
and he's happier than he's been in a long while;
He's starting forever again.


2.
She waits at the back with her
sister and mom
She'll walk through that door on the
arm of her son
and take a second chance on love, that she'd thought was gone;
She's starting forever again.


Chorus 1.
We're here in the church,
but we're not here alone;
The great crowd of witnesses
who stand 'round the throne
are cheering us on, and they give their "Amen",
as Bud and Bobbie start forever again.


3.
The young pledge their love
to husbands and wives
For better, for worse,
in peace or in strife
But when holding a hand at the end of a life,
You wonder where forever went...


4.
Some folks find love once
a few find it twice
When old friends find love
it's especially nice
to think loved ones in glory have made their assent
As we take our first steps to forever again


Bridge
The leaving and cleaving are
starting anew;
Forever began
when they both said "I do."
Our fam'lies were joined by the love of old friends
and loved ones in glory are saying "Amen."


Chorus 2.
They're starting out fresh,
but not travel'ling alone;
The great crowd of witnesses
who stand 'round the throne
are cheering them on, and they give their "Amen",
as Bud and Bobbie start forever again...


We're cheering them on,
and we give our "Amen",
as Bud and Bobbie start forever
again.

That's a beautiful song! A sweet and gentle reflection on love between an senior couple. My 80 year old aunt remarried last year, and they are the sweetest newlyweds. :-)
