Just Forty Days - Poem by Loyd C. Taylor, Sr.

It was in the year of 2005,
In the autumn-kissed month of September;
Broken roads met for a man and woman
In a way they will always remember.

It was Monday, plain old Monday,
Just another day of the week:
The twenty-sixth day of the month,
A day not particularly unique.

It was at 7PM on that Monday night
On a blind date arranged by friends,
At a little house on South Gordon Drive
That a miracle of love began.

Yes, it was a miracle, not a coincidence
For they knew God arranged it all;
Allowing their paths to cross with each other
At the time when golden leaves fall.

Two people met and two lives were changed
In a mysterious and unusual way;
For Scotty and Dreama would be married
In the space of just forty days.

It was Saturday, November the fifth,
Somewhere around four o’clock,
Before the minister, family and friends,
Scotty and Dreama tied the knot.

Just forty days since they found each other,
Forty days since they learned to love.
A short span of time lived on earth
But long planned by God above.

Congratulations to you are now in order!
And our wish for you both sincere,
May your lives be filled with the wonder
You have found in this special year!

May the fire of love you both discovered
Shine bright as the Sun’s golden rays;
May you enjoy the warmth of love forever
As you did in just forty days.

    Loyd, what a beautiful poem you have created. Little is much when God is in it. Forty days is long enough when it's in his plan. Great write. Thank you
