Once upon a time
once upon a time a young sailor
decided to marry his lovely girl.
but everybody laughed at them for they were very poor.
years have passed
and around them all were divorcing or being unhappy
yet they were happy and more in love every day.
they were walking together for hours hand in hand,
shared everything, smiling,
growing old together they were oneday asked:
how could they be so happy all life?
looking at each other they answered:
“we were born in an age when,
if something got broken,
it was never thrown away or replaced, but repaired.”
