As We Grow Old

The man I dream of,
is tender but strong,
and I will be the music,
to the words of his song.

His eyes will give comfort,
as I talk of my day,
and I will listen completely,
to all he will say.

A hand to hold,
a heart of gold,
as we grow old.

The one you describe is the man of my dreams. A man who can make a woman's heart sing because she feels such unconditional love. How wonderful it would be to have "A hand to we grow old." Beautiful, Christy. Thank you for the inspiration and hope this poem provides. Love, carolyn

Christy, that is what marriage is all about. Growing more in love with each new day and holding that hand till the Lord calls you home. Christy you and Jack Reed are my oldest friends here on the soup and I always say a prayer for you guys. One other thing my wife (Ginger) read your poem Planting New Seeds and she said tell you it was beautiful and it made her cry. God Bless and Keep. Ron
