It all began about 60 years ago,
On a very special summers day,
For two unexpected teenage kids,
Love was about to come their way.

Boy meets girl, things move quick,
Nobody gave their love a chance,
It's been seen a million times before,
Just another hopeless young romance.

But for this couple it was different,
Since day one it was meant to be,
It was that forever fairytale happiness,
The kind you can only see on T.V.

One day she looked at him and asked,
"What is it with your life you'd like to do?"
He gently kissed her forehead and said,
"Sweetheart, I dream to grow old with you"

Smiling because they were so in love,
Suddenly he got down on one knee,
Pulled out a beautiful diamond ring,
And asked "Princess, will you marry me?"

Tears falling from her big brown eyes,
It was a yes as she nodded her head,
And just seven short months later,
These two teenage kids were wed.

They bought a house and settled down,
Got pregnant and gave birth to a little girl,
How is it at just twenty-three years old,
They could have everything in the world.

For fifty years their lives were perfect,
As grandchildren grew the love did too,
But with a simple trip to the doctor,
The future suddenly held a different view.

He was diagnosed with bone cancer,
The doctors didn't give him very long,
He fought with everything he had left,
But at eighty, he wasn't very strong.

As he lay in a hospital bed about to die,
Hand in hand with his best friend and wife,
He said "I want you to know since Nineteen,
You've been my everything, my whole life"

With tears falling from her big brown eyes,
She asked "did all of your dreams come true?"
He kissed her forehead and with his final breath,
Said "Of course princess, I grew old with you"
