GROWING OLD

“Grow old along with me the best is yet to be.”

by Robert Browning

Lives lived in separate anonymity,
you and I are relative strangers
but there is no danger present
and the promises of futures shared
are there for the taking. There is
no mistaking how we feel. It is as real
as we’ve ever felt. Having knelt at the altar
of sad despair, it is there that I begin again.
A heart full of love, and a friend who
brings the same to this game. It’s a shame
we hadn’t met in an earlier time. All this rhyme
wouldn’t have been needed to seed this heart.
From the start, our words held sway and
every day we learn what we want for  the rest
of our lives. A chance to grow in heart and mind,
and find no fear in growing old together.
Only the best for us in all ways, in our coming days!
