When ye downcast so be, I take a cue
From words my mother said long time ago.
“Leave him to be,” she said, “say naught nor do
“For quiet he needs, and ye need not a row.”
I find my mother doth know thing or two.
So wise she is, and words from her I hear.
After a bit, ye will emerge and coo
Ye love for me, express to me, my dear.
I love thee fully, strong and sweet indeed.
I celebrate our love on this o’r day.
O’r love was just so long ago a seed.
Now in full bloom, we pledge o’r love, we say:
I love thee with a lover’s pledge of faith.
Long years ahead I hope, I pray, I saith.
