I wrote this 12 years ago , they have now been married 22 years and she is a brilliant daughter in law , KATE MY DAUGHTER IN LAW AND FRIEND I remember the day I met Alec's Kate I looked out of the window and down passed the gate I thought would I like her and would she like me I thought what does she eat what would I give her for tea I went into the garden and picked some nice flowers I tidied and fussed and I polished for hours He'd told us so much about Kate Alec had As he sat in the house with just Me and his Dad I couldn't stand still and I couldn't sit down The thoughts in my head kept going round and around I thought of the future and what it would hold I thought of all the nice stories he'd told Oh! she's at the door Alec's letting her in She said Oh! hello and she gave me a grin Well from that moment on we've been really good friends But that's not where this story ends They've been married ten years now and as happy can be They've bought a new house now and live not far from me They've two gorgeous wee girls now what more can I say So when I look back now to that far off day All I can think of is HIP! HIP! HORRAH!

What a lovely poem, you are truly gifted my friend as are those who know you, to know such a wonderful person. As I said before I hope you have all these splended poems all together in a book even if they are typed out or hand written. Wonderful memories, thanks for sharing x

Such a sweet poem. It makes me think of when my kids are old enough to get married (my daughter's almost 17!). I think I will be feeling just as nervous and fussy as you did then. LOL

Sounds like a wonderful daughter in law you have and a friend too. I think it's very important to have her as a daughter in law. Great poem too. Thanks for sharing.
