The story of profound love.

‘Twas on a sunny day in May

Along the banks of Fundy Bay

When I met... my dearest Anthony


From a distance...I could see

His rugged frame...and symmetry



And the glint of Irish eyes...of bluish green


With manly strides... he lingered there

Along a path of grasses... where

The sun reflected on... his golden hair


And with a glance... he stole my breath

I could not still... my heaving breast

With every step he took... I nearly died

 So overcome with... such profound emotions... that I could not hide


‘Twas in that magic moment... that we fell in love

Blessed by heaven... and the angels up above

And with their keeping...we were married... in the month of June

Underneath a pale misty silken silver moon


We built a house... upon a hill...that overlooked the harbour

With a winding path... to the door... that walked... between the arbour

And there... among the sea salt roses... and the ocean breeze

We lived and loved and raised our family


The years went quickly sailing by

Sometimes we laughed...sometimes we cried

But through it all...we never left...each others side

For...we had that kind of special love... that never dies


A love...that asks the reason why

I stand upon our path and cry

As I look out to the ocean where you lie

So overcome... with such profound emotion... wishing I could die.
