Forever Love

They sit out on the front porch, with the grand-kids running bout As they rock back and forth, they're still in love without a doubt Many years they've had together each one the other's friend Their hearts are joined forever though life, is at it's end Beyond the age and wrinkles they're still young and carefree Hearts so full and happy as the never-ending sea Eyes still hold the flames that have burned from long ago Hand in hand they smile, as they're rocking to and fro His touch still warm and gentle, he beholds his angel's face The words so soft and fragile, "I will always love you Grace" Her hand he gently squeezes, and in an instant he is gone She looks at the empty chair that still keeps rocking strong Sitting there alone, she sheds a single tear For many years he's been away and now, her own end is near A gentle breeze begins to blow she feels his fingers through her hair The time has come to re-unite and finally leave this rocking chair Bravely, she takes one last breath, her lonely days now gone No more to part from her true love, together.....they live on
