Unexpectantly

My parents met unexpectantly,
she was only 17, he was 18
he knew he had met his future wife
love developed quickly between them
they quietly eloped and were married
then returned to their homes
not telling anyone, their love would last
through a short nine years of marriage
then death separated them for many long years
now they are together again...finally

Mom, with all due respect, "unexpectantly" is not a word.

Cheers!

Let's rename this post "Unexpectedly" thanks to my observant intelligent writer son Brook. Cheers to you too. Love you lots, Mom
