Appeared did they to be a peaceful, also a mostly quiet couple,

Smiles on their faces as their days were filled with fun and activity.

Barbecues on weekends, sitting on the porch in the evening air,

Mowing the lawn on a Saturday, planting flowers in the garden.

They would come and go as they pleased, two different cars of color,

A hello as they passed you by walking down the street, they had names.

Laughter from their house at times even an argument or two I’ve heard,

It appears they get along very well but then nothing in life is perfect.

The neighbors are basically like everyone else, differences in all though,

I remember them well, I came home from a trip and they were gone, the neighbors.
