Nights of old when it started to get cold
No central heating, nowhere to go to get
Warm, not even until dawn.
.But what did we care? We had each other,
Even though I never got on with your mother
Fortunately, she ran off with her lover and
Left us in peace.
As for keeping warm, we had each other
To cuddle and care, spending many hours
Without a dare.
But what went wrong I can only guess,
Maybe fitting central heating put out
The flames of our passion, or we just
Went out of fashion.
Years later we met again. With you relighting
my fire, we set up home until your mother left her
Lover and moved in with us, which wasn’t
So the flames died away. I moved out without
Any doubt and moved in with Kay and we are
Still together to this day.
