A young couple holding hands

the joy on their faces obvious.

A kiss on the cheek and long

stares into each others’ eyes.


Blissful walks in the park

watching the children play

Knowing the other is there

even when work demands.


Traveling around the country

finishing each others’ sentences.

Going where he wants and

taking time for her antiquing.


Counting out the meds each morn.

Helping to bathe and care for each other.

Their enduring love is obvious;

an old couple holding hands.

  2. seeing “an old couple holding hands” never fails to fascinate me. it gives us hope that maybe we can find love just like that also. wishful thinking here.

    these are all lovely, romantic verses!

  3. Nicely put! A great ode to the importance of not the large ego of love but the little consessions and times together that make it so.

  4. oohh I love this! I love how you progress from them being young to growing old together, still in just as much if not more love than when they started out. Love it! great piece!!
