LOVE FOR A LIFETIME
They were two growing up as children, a town that still exists,
Ages does it just as in some ways a boy and girl grow slowly older.
I remember you both, names for souls whom I once knew in a place,
A wonderful town where for me dreams were a beginning in my mind.
An elementary school high on a hill is where you, a young boy played,
A schoolyard of kickball and many other games, your voice echoes today.
You , a girl remembered back at a Jr. high where friends are heard in the wind,
Through high school, two would travel then beyond that a new road to walk.
Although I haven’t seen you for thirty years I see that you two have been blessed,
Love for a lifetime, a rare and special gift, a book of your lives, chapters to be written.
