I dedicate the lyrics of this lovely song to Leslie and Lorne to celebrate their forthcoming marriage.
Love is lovelier the second time around
Just as wonderful with both feet on the ground
It's that second time you hear your love song sung
Makes you think perhaps love, like youth is wasted on the young
Love's more comfortable the second time you fall
Like a friendly home the second time you call
Who can say what brought us to this miracle we've found?
There are those who'll bet love comes but once, and yet
I'm so glad we met the second time around.
Leslie and Lorne's forthcoming marriage brings to mind when my first marriage collapsed,
I found myself alone with three adorable little girls to raise, I didn't think I would fall in love again, yet I did, just a year later....
We didn't marry for a few years as we wanted to go slowly so that the 'girls' would get used to Ian and him to them, We both maintained our own homes but spent weekends together until, one daughter asked Ian when he was going to marry 'our Mum' ?
Whoosh ! It all happened then, engagement ring on finger and 10 months later we were married....27 years on and still happy,
So, all best wishes dear Leslie and Lorne for a long and loving marriage.
