Jim & Mary

February 13th, 2013 Leave a comment Go to comments

Jim was born in New Jersey,
But at twenty, was a saddle-bronc rider
Doing rodeo across the plateau,
With too many broken bones
And too little money to show.

Both Jim and his two sisters
Have seen their departed mother many times, they say,
A sign of eternal life, or a spiritual bouquet?
Their 85 year old Dad is still kicking,
His heart still beating today.

Jim met Mary recently, the love of his life;
A loving, caring and sweet woman.
Both of them are aware that life is too short
For bickering and strife;
Now isn’t it something, that Mary has been Jim’s new found light?

Now put Jim & Mary together and
Besides the laughter and the bliss,
You’ll certainly surmise
That even though Jim is big and Mary is pint-size,
Their love for each other, they just can’t quite disguise.

Terry and I have so much fun with you guys! Hope to see you soon!

Mary let us know today that Jim’s Dad passed away;
It was expected but still very sad to hear
Since the man was loved and very dear.
He lived a long, full life with many friends galore;
Now isn’t this what we all strive for?

Bob, 7/25/13
Condolences Jim!
