Deckchairs - Poem by Matthew Holloway

I see a picture in my heart
Of us both in old age
Sitting quietly on a beach
Hand in hand, almost as one
A wealth of memories shared
A strength found together
A happy love, a happy life
And still yet more to come
The adventures and stories
Which can weather any storm
And be counted as numerous
And beautiful as every peble
Washed upon this shore
I see this picture and keep it
For it is all I wish to be
An old man sat beside his love
Watching the sea
