Poetry: A Poem for A Couple I Never Knew

I wrote this in 2006 inspired by my husband’s parents.

Love is written in the stars

Many of us speculate

Why and how these two met

She was always literature’s mate

he  was very well unread

But still these two started

A very fruitful fairytale

One without castles 

Or a tall, tall bed

But one that would blossom

Into a lovely romance 

that would bring me 

my special somebody
