Love Story

Oliver had his Jennifer;

Stephen has his Stefanie.

Ollie and Jenny:

Steve and Stef.


They met in college

As did Steve and I.

His parents didn’t approve of Jenny

Nor did Steve’s approve of me.


They met in a library;

We met in a gym.

Jenny was a teacher

And so was I


“What can you say about a 25-year-old girl who died?”

Oliver’s memorial to his wife.

“Love means never having to say you’re sorry”

Jennifer’s infamous words to her preppy.


Oliver, when in need of money, was asked by his dear ol’ dad

Why, have you “gotten a girl in trouble?”

Steve’s granny once said similar words, but to me

“We always knew you trapped him.”


“To make a long story short” or “Get in the kitchen, woman!”

Are some of Steve’s most famous lines.

“I’m a lover not a fighter” or “Most men do”

Are often some of Stef’s retorts.


Oliver loved his Jenny;

Steve loves his Stef.

Their story comprised a novella

Ours will need a few sequels.
