One day I looked up and saw a blue moon,
The time had come and not a minute too soon.
I picked up some flowers and her favourite chocolate,
I scampered along, today I just couldn’t wait.
Walking passed her window, I caught her eye,
They were swollen with tears and hidden behind a smile.
Her father looked at me and signalled me to go,
He was giving her away; she would be mine no more.
What could I say, I had nothing much to show,
I resigned to my fate and watched her slowly go.
When is love enough and honesty adequate,
When is money enough and greed replete.
I looked up again and there was no moon,
The time had gone, a minute too soon.
