That First Pair

          One day the Lord said:
          "Adam, you need 'the gentler touch' ~
          Someone to aid you in your work
          In naming beasts and such.

          "So I'll create a woman,
          And she'll be your helpmeet;
          She'll give more meaning to your life
          And make you feel complete.

          "I'll make her spirit sweeter,
          And soften her a bit;
          I'll give her heart some extra warmth
          And love before I quit.

          "And as the seasons come and go,
          You'll find she grows more dear;
          She'll be more precious in your eyes
          With each new passing year.

          "And you must seek to please her,
          And keep the romance fresh;
          For she will be bone of your bones,
          And the flesh of your flesh."

          And that's how it first started,
          That's how it all began ~
          God made a woman that same day,
          And gave her to the man.

          So each year you're together,
          You both should say a prayer ~
          To thank the good Lord up above
          For making that First Pair!

"And the Lord God fashioned into a woman the rib which
He had taken from the man, and brought her to the man."
(Genesis 2:22, NASB)
