On That Fateful Picnic Day - Poem by Sandra Martyres

On that fateful picnic day, when
To prove that we were different
We bravely plunged into the dam
To exchange wedding wows
Amid a cheering group of friends
We held hands and sent up a prayer
Sealing our union with a kiss
The glorious moments unfortunately
Did not last very long, we were struck
With the awful feeling of being
Caught in a whirlpool with
The angel of death hovering close by
Terror was writ large on the faces
Of all our friends and witnesses
As they faced the prospect of having
To dive into the water to save us
Eventually they did brave it and we
Were all fortunate to come out alive
To celebrate our wedding in a church
With all the traditions - white dress
Bouquet and dad giving daughter away
With our rescuers, family and friends
