Capturing the moment that changed my life

Royston 1946 (Reading)



It was a precious moment; a moment so divine
when you appeared into my life and your eyes first met mine.
The world appeared to stand still caught up in such ecstasy
and my heart was smitten by the girl standing next to me.

What a difference you have made to this life of mine
for each day has been a blessing and full of bright sunshine.
Many delightful years have flown by as our love has grown
and it's so wonderful to have you as my very own.
