Thread Name: Favourite Love Song
Subject: RE: Favourite Love Song
My favourite is one written in Mount Hope, Ontario by a school teacher named George Johnson, and since my wife's name is Maggie, it's especially dear to me (and her). The second verse hits home since we are now both senior citizens.

They say I am feeble with age Maggie
I step not as spritely as then
My face is a well a well written page Maggie
And time alone was the pen
They say we are aged and gray, Maggie,
As spray by the wild breakers flung
But to me you're as fair as you were Maggie   
When you and I were young
