Together Through the Years

Together Through the Years

By Elton Camp

Marriages have come and gone
Elmer and Rachel have held on 

Early, their resources were few
They always shared and made do

Their quarters were really quite spare
Still, the couple found happiness there

An enormous increase came to their joy
They became parents to a girl and boy

Whatever life’s problems came to demand
The two of them always made a united stand

The children now have been long gone
Having established families of their own

They visit with the grandchildren in tow
So the older generation they come to know

Elmer and Rachel are now happily retired
By their devotion, younger ones are inspired

Decades ago, their marriage did begin
They will remain together to the end

    Thanks for your comment. I thought of this when seeing a feeble old couple hand-in-hand helping each other get along.
