Free Verse On Love


You have loved me, always,
as you did throughout our spring-
so lush and green-
when nothing was too hard for us
to keep our love
alive and new.

All through the summer of our life,
as children blessed
our married years,
and tending to them became first-
you did still love me always-
as you did.

When autumn years then came around-
an empty nest
made us adjust.
More time alone- but missed them too.
You did still love me always-
as you did.

And you still love me, always, 
as you do, now that  
our winter years arrived.
More aches and pains and slower pace-
yet still a thrill
in holding hands.

Would you still love me, always,
as you did- when winter fades
and can't go on-
be by my side until the end?
I know you will-
till now- you have.
