We Pushed The Boat Out
They’d really pushed the boat out for us,
a garden party with a sumptuous spread
in celebration of our engagement.
To go for a walk seemed a good idea
on that sleepy sunny afternoon
after so much rich food,
so much sparkling wine.
We were filled up with with love
as we walked by the river
and it was there that we saw the boat
moored by the river bank
complete with it’s oars.
We didn’t know whose boat it was
and we had never rowed before
but we took a punt
and pushed the boat out.
We didn’t get very far
but it didn’t matter.
It was enough.
We thought it was the beginning,
the beginning of our future.
but we were wrong.
That beginning was also our end.
