two old folk

They sat side by side together
On a bench looking out at sea
Just an ordinary old couple
With different thoughts and memory

He remembers his young love
With blonde hair all curly and clean
Smelling of herbs after washing
Glinting with a shiny sheen.

She remembers his blue eyes
Piercing right into her soul
Eyes that watched over her
Making her feel whole

Their hands are held tightly
She knows how hard they feel
Knowing that each callous 
Was money for another meal

He sees the redness of her skin
Where years of toil took their toll
But with this blemish, it just means
They were clean and fed overall.

They are just 2 old folks
Like Darby and Joan of the song
Together in life for many years
With each other they know they belong.

    It reminds me a little of the old Simon and Garfunkle song, Old Friends. I enjoyed the piece and what it made me feel. Thank you Lisa K.S.
