Rhymes, Rants & Accolades from North Central BC

That was a lovely wedding 🥰

Here are the lyrics to the song I wrote and sang at the ceremony for the adorable (somewhat mature) bride and groom:

Love in Your 80s

What does it take to find love in your 80s
To open your heart and make a new start
What do you need to believe in a future
To lift up your face to the stars
Sharing the space where you are

Your life has been long, you’ve had to be strong
Counting the costs of the things you have lost
With so much that’s over and so many gone
In the twilight of life you’ll find a new song
A song of two hearts who belong

What does it take to find love in your 80s
To open your mind and see what you’ll find
What do you need to believe in a future
To lift up your face to the stars
Sharing the space where you are

Nothing is over until it is over
As long as you live you’ve still love to give
After each ending, it’s time for beginning
what else is losing but practice for winning

Here’s what it takes to find love in your 80s
It’s courage and faith and a sparkle of grace
It’s life everlasting, and feast after fasting
And lifting your face to the stars
Sharing the space where you are

Your lives have been long, you’ve both been so strong
Now, sharing the costs of the things you have lost
With so much that’s over and so many gone
In the twilight of life, this is a new song
A song of two hearts who belong
