A Gay Engagement

It’s been a long


Living life

As it came

No vows just hope

That love would win


As the years passed

One day to another

Was it a surprise

To still be standing

Side by side



Now’s the time

It’s been too long

Marry me

Be my bride

For love, my dear,

Has finally won.

    Theresa, you might be interested in this announcement, which was read from the pulpit at First UnitarianChurch in Portland, OR yesterday:

    “After a happy 33-year engagement, R.L. and A.S. eloped to Vancouver, Washington on August 16 where they were legally married by the Reverends Duane Fickeisen and Judy Welles. The happy couple is now at home in Southeast Portland, where they are working on filing their joint tax returns.”

    The congregation loved it! It’s fun to bring some humor to this oh-so-serious issue.
