#30 "criss cross?

for penny
            on our 15th wedding anniversary

 

ever since that night
            at cobb's corner
            in 1979, when i saw you criss-

 

crossing the floor, your perfect ass a-
            swing & a-sway, oh
            it was love

 

at first sight, & i've stayed that way
            through all the crazy changes
            we managed to endure, criss-

 

crossing in & out
            of each other's lives, splitting up
            & coming back together

 

so many times, until we were joined
            as husband & wife at last
            on that bright first day of 1989?

 

& 15 years later, i still love you
            more every day, & i'll keep on loving you
            as long as i have life

 

& if I have to be so far a-
            way from you
            on this lucky day, i?m out here criss-

 

crossing the ocean to find
            a place where i can bring you
            to live out our days together, baby,

 

oh yeah?happily ever after
