Growing Old Together:
Looking through the photographs,
of ten thousand memories ago;
it still seems like yesterday
even though today I am old.
I still remember the first
time we met, I froze
and stood so still!
So afraid that you would turn and go.
Then you smiled and said hello.
I was so very lost for
words and completely dazzled
by the sight of you.
The years have come and gone
since our first hello, yet every
single day will pass and I'm still
head over heels in love with you.
Wrinkles and scars they appear,
but that's not what I see.
I still see that lovely girl I
fell in love with so many years ago.
Gracefully we journey and
together we will grow old, I would
not want it any other way. Loving
you always even till the day I have to go.
