Devotion - Poem by Margaret Cox

What a touching sight it is to see
An elderly couple as close as can be
Linking arms or hands clasped tight
Clinging together with all of their might
Sharing a look, a kiss on the cheek
They are always together week after week
Knowing each other inside out
Real love, that’s what it’s all about
Strolling along the promenade
Finding walking really quite hard
But always together through thick and thin
They have so many memories deep within.

Sharing a seat, looking out to sea
I wonder where they would rather be
Lost in thoughts of times long ago
Wishing for what, I would like to know
Watching the waves gently lapping the shore
Seagulls calling, they gaze upwards in awe
He helps her up and they go on their way
Enough for today, I think they will say
But on the way back, at a little shop
For a nice ice-cream they just have to stop
Another day they will be back again
Come sunshine, or snow, or even rain.
