The restaurant we booked is our favourite spot
The food is ok and we like it a lot.
There’s something for everyone, even for kate
Who’s making us laugh discussing her weight
And josie arrived with her usual flair,
last week a brunette, now there’s pink in her hair!
Poor Avis is moaning about her poor swing
It seems playing golf is her latest ‘new thing’
So typically Jan has turned up a bit late
all flustered and seems in a bit of a state.
The menopause really is making it tough
Which explains why most of the time she feels rough
When Lizzie arrives then the table’s complete
and we order the dishes that we want to eat.
And while we are waiting we catch up in style
we listen to updates that make us all smile
Together we’ve lived through the good and the bad,
the gossip and scandal ,the happy and sad.
We seen our kids morph into adults so fine
now they have all grown and for once we have time
To sit and remember the years that have passed
and marvel at how the years moved on so fast.
We started as young women all newly wed
unsure what life held for us in times ahead
We lived through divorces and illnesses too,
two of us widowed, but still we pulled through.
One business went bankrupt and times became hard,
some challenges faced left a few of us scarred.
But always we talked of our kids and our joy
of the good things we had that no one could destroy.
The bond of a friendship that lasts through the years,
our love for each other through laughter and tears
We’re ladies that lunch ,but we are so much more.
We’re women who have through their lives fought a war
to stay in the ‘now’ and can finally say
We’re ladies that lunched and we’re happy that way!
This is a real gathering of strong wonderful women that have been the best support group anyone could ever want ! Thank you girls!
