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.
