Commitment

Old couple old couple
Entwined in your grey
The shuffle of your footsteps
Shows where you are today
Together forever
In your own kind of way
Never to be broken
Never to sway
Old couple old couple
Bonded by memories
How is your life
With only yourselves to please
Your hearing all but gone
As you strain to bend an ear
Thickened glasses on your face
To eliminate any fear
Old couple old couple
Arm in arm you go
Ever so polite
Ever so slow
The journey you've made
Is not but a show
But a commitment to love
That only you know

A beautiful sentiment to those who have made it through time to share their golden years together.

This reminds me of a colleague of mine and her husband, they are still holding hands after years and years of being together, still have that shine of first love about them. So beautiful.
