It Was A Good Day - Poem by Martin Swords

The Anniversary Hand

It was a good day
Everyday
It was a great time
All the time
Since I met you

It was a great life
Full of life
It was good together
Altogether
Just we two, plus two

And though it wasn’t perfect
Some might say
We think it’s good together
Day to day
This family way

It’s good to sit together
Looking back
We’ll carry on whatever’s
In the pack
We’re dealt

It is a good day
Everyday is grand
The King and Queen of Hearts
Are winning
Their Last Hand
