It was fifty years ago today.
The folks said 'I do' in Phoenix
after having trouble finding
a magistrate on a holiday.

They stayed married till
his death in 1982,
thirty-three years together,
always loving each other,

Four years along they
decided to do something
they didn't have to,
they decided to love me.

but this is about them,
both long gone now,
the two finest people
I have ever known.
