Married 33 years ago this year
She is still beautiful to him
In her heart he is always near
Only death could separate them.
Dinner at a diner all this time
Each year on this their wedding day
Tonight something with the spoon's chime
The necklace bought from the display.
She says then that he should not have
Though she knows it is not quite true
She is the wife that he should have
It is the least that he can do.
Married now for all these short years
Nineteen Eighty Four calms all fears.
