Growing Old Together


To be like them who all would envy
To know a love that snared two hearts
To feel that love while in their presence
To wonder how such true love starts

To hear it in in their conversation
To catch it when their voices rise
To see it in her softest gesture
and in the twinkle of his eyes

To see them slowly walk together
To see him reach out for her hand
A habit born from years of caring
Is more than most can understand

To see two lives so wrapped together
Two hearts merged and so aligned
Where thoughts are shared before they're spoken
When mind and soul are intertwined

To watch them look upon each other
and know they see beyond the years
They see with eyes of two young lovers
Filled with the joy of lovers tears

All wonder where such true love started
Not coincidence, but sacrifice
God was there in their chance meeting
When two would choose to pay one price

Behind this love is certain knowledge
True love only can be won
When there's unconditional surrender
To give all for the other one.

    what a wonderful relationship you are in and it's fantastic you have the talent to create pictures of love in your words. i'm shamed to say my writings are not generally so aplumb with dedication. I rid the demons, you embrace the wonder of love. awesome. neat to see something so dramatically different from my usual tone. thanks. (Report) Reply
