Important Days - Poem by Randy McClave
There are two important days in the life of every man
Both of those days are when he is in a limousine as a plan,
One of those days is the day when he decides to get married
And that other important day, is the day when he gets buried.
When I was married I was forced to wear a suit and also a tie
So, please tell the undertakers not to dress me up that way when I die,
Remember this! I want to look and feel comfortable for my final rest
So, please don't place me in a suit and a tie for my ending quest.
On my first important day I took vows, then I ate cake and I danced
I was surrounded by loved ones and friends, so at them all I glanced,
The second important day I might be surrounded by people for whom I don't care
They all might gossip about me, and at them I can't intimidate with a stare.
I dressed to please my wife and my family on the day of our wedding
Now I hope to please only myself with a suit and tie that I’d be shedding,
Into the life of every man there are two very important days
They both start or end with friends and a ride, and ends with tears or praise.
