The Word

The use of the word is loosely, banded around
But it's true meaning, it's core, has never been found,

The bond is found between a mother and her child
Between brothers, sisters, the best of friends and* never mild

It is the purest and rawest human emotion
and leads to the most magical devotion

Many people have tried to put it in to words,
By using images of planets, flowers or birds,

It can take your breath away like the orange sun on a pink sky,
It makes people do anything without having to ask why,

It should be celebrated every day for years on end
And across time and space it will transcend

So raise your glasses for a toast and three cheers
As we come together, here today, to celebrate your fifty years.                          M.Grainger/D.Weston


This was written to celebrate my Grandparent's 50th Anniversary this weekend. So it's dedicated to them and their very special marriage! 


Also, many thanks to Molly Grainger (http://mollygrainger.blogspot.com)for her help and valuable input to ensure it turned out just right.
