Having written poetry for over 60 years (published on only the 2 occasions I have submitted for publication) I had always wished to be able to write songs. But I am not a musician and even when I sang it was always A Capella because I was not so good at being accompanied. I accepted the challenge and now am learning to be accompanied! I met a musician who had also a desire to write songs, so I did the lyrics and she wrote the melodies for most of the songs we created. This is the very first one. It is the story of meeting my wife 30 years ago in Tenerife, my first time out of my own country.
