As the day unfolded, I learned more
Open feelings, not just drawer
Discovering each other, too
Things that make us happy or blue
Setting our priorities right and be grounded
So happy to be here as the day unfolded
With Him Indoors, son and his bride
Also Mum and siblings – my pride
And as long as we’ve got good health
These loved ones and friends, they’re my wealth
Being in nature, mountains, also the seashores
Anywhere, anytime always with Him Indoors*
