Mom & Dad

Serina Lewis

Who said that Mom would be left on a shelf
Teaching and travel, laughter and singing
None so brazen and sure of herself
She’d spend her days, dancing and swinging

She went on a family conspired tour
Hoping for sparks on that hill resort trip
Following her closely went Dad to allure
But missed meeting her and boy, did she flip

Back to the drawing board he did return
Motivated by a special reason
To plan another well-thought-out sojourn
Knowing she was his second cousin

Travelling by train to win her favour
Fingers crossed for love at first sight
To win a bride in this endeavour
As indeed it would be on that fateful night

He was instantly struck by her hour-glass figure
While she didn’t notice he had two left feet
With good looks, charm and apparent vigour
A match was lit on the day they did meet
Getting acquainted by mail with each other
Their missives couldn’t arrive fast enough
Parents made sure they didn’t delay either
Details chalked out and all was set up

Eddie and Bella’s marriage was arranged
Blessed with showers on a summer’s day
Vows were read and rings exchanged
They were united for life on the third of May
