We Shall Grow Old Together - Poem by Carmina Abrenica

Younger days to days of old
Tides may be high or low
Summer days will never be cold
Together, we shall grow

As our hairs will be painted grey
To a night's love song we shall sway
And cuddle in every stormy weather
We shall grow old together

Our eyes' vision will soon blur
Yet unlike a leaf and a flower
Sparkle in our gazes will never wither
We shall grow old together

Our knees will soon weaken
A good sleep will surely shorten
Yet our loving arms will be stronger
As we grow old together

Time will come that the mind will forget
But our hearts will always remember
Our memories through the years and those to happen yet
Together we shall grow in endless days of summer
