Tom (YHS 1947) wrote this poem for Maureen when he was 20 and had it reprinted in the local paper as a surprise for their 50th wedding anniversary on 29th December 2006:

The Lover’s Poem Come live with me and be my love I’d care for you like I would a dove No matter what the weather, black or fine I’d care for you all the time. No matter whether you’re rich or poor I’d care for you all the more If the world about is hard and cold I’ll care for you until we are old If I should die before you dear I’d wait for you, don’t shed a tear Until we meet up there above I’ll care for you, my own true love In the world that comes after life Now and forever, you will be my wife All my love, Tommy
