Family - The Wedding Photo Of 1951 - Poem by Paul Warren

I looked at a black and white Wedding Photo of 1951
My parents were married their life only begun
My father was standing handsome, tall and straight
My mother in her wedding dress in beauty to create
A wedding party with two uncles and two aunts
Looking to the camera waiting for life and its grants

It was before the five boys and a life time of care
When life was full and what in their world they would dare
They say these people were the greatest generation
And those people after a war built our great nation
My mother is the only one left now in this wedding party
As time marches on and takes what it will in its tally.
