Long, quiet evenings,
Simple things enjoyed,
Chores and household tasks shared,
And through sharing, changed.
Changed from tedious, dreaded duties,
Into special times.
Times for loving and being close,
And building memories.
Taking time from mowing lawn,
For ice-tea in the cool shade,
Or a pillow-fight, before the bed is made.
Long walks when the sun is low,
Holding hands by the fire’s glow,
And sharing every joy and every doubt.
Sharing something everlasting,
In a world that’s ever-changing.
Being always ever hopeful,
Ever loving, ever true.
Being part of life, and living,
Truly caring, truly giving,
Individuals, and yet forever one.
