I met you in January
Introducing myself as Carrie.
I fell in love in February
With a man called Harry.
We dated all through March
First kissed underneath an arch.
We made love every day in April
But then I learnt about Jill.
After your confession in May,
I asked you to go away.
I drank away the month of June
My mind was clouded every afternoon.
We ran into each other in July
After that, I couldn’t help but cry.
I called you in August
You promised everything would be all good.
The rain drenched us in September
Our lust was reignited like ember.
I was completely sober.
It was cold in November
But our love had become tender.
On the last day of December
You said: “Listen and Remember!
I loved you every month this year
Without you, something was missing, dear.”
The clock was ticking and happy days were plenty
“Marry me!” My mind was blank and empty
But I whispered “Yes”; and so it began
The rest of our lives with you as my man.
Happily ever after, we grew old together
And our love stayed light as feather.
No mountain was ever too high
And if it was we spread our wings to fly
No ocean was ever too deep
And if it was, we came up with solutions in our sleep.
Year’s later, our lights are becoming dim
But my heart will always and forever beg me to swim
Until my eyes and your eyes are closed forever. That much is true.
