Worthy Of A Song

Worthy Of A Song

( A ballad for my wife, Anahit Arustamyan, poet of Armenia )

They say the bridge is broken, not safe to cross,
the girders are not strong,
and they worry that the roads were built too wide,
the time taken too long,
but our documents led to our wedding rings,
already our love is worthy of a song.

The winter wolf has woken, leaps from his lair,
leaves paw prints in the snow.
The voters are unhappy with their leaders,
but have nowhere to go,
still the ministry of justice have agreed
we are together, our love is free to grow.

Yes, already, already,
already our love is worthy of a song.
It will be a quiet ballad,
not a rowdy sing a long.
We can sing it in the bath tub,
tap its beat out on a gong.
We will craft the rhyme and rhythm,
and make sure no word is wrong.
Already our love is worthy of a song.
Yes, already, already,
already our love is worthy of a song.
