I am Marge, Jim's sister. As I entered church one day I noticed an empty seat beside a nice looking lady. As our eyes connected, it was obvious that a bond existed between us to be cherished. This bond blossomed and now, over ten years later, it is still very much alive. Her name is Mary.


It may only happen just once in a lifetime

This random occasion that brings

A measure of friendship that is so sublime

You rejoice and your happy heart sings

 

You reflect on the meaning, is it just happenstance

Predestination's gift from Above

Whatever the reason it makes your heart dance

And glory in platonic love

 

I try not to reason, I just choose to tell

A lady named Mary I know

How much this occasion that I know so well

Still lingers as I watch it grow
