THEY WOULD BE FOREVER
They met before the beginning of world war two, a lifetime ago,
A young man and woman just starting out, war was coming.
He would enlist in the army and go away, would he survive to return,
Pearl harbor and many other places for a young man to see,
In another time beauty, death and destruction for a moment In time.
They would be forever as this young woman would follow her love
On his travels to many different places In this world.
After his time In a war never forgotten but wished to be forgotten
They settled in a town called Monrovia In California for a life.
As they are now married for I believe sixty seven years and sit
Together each day with smiles always on their faces and much faith.
There was a time when once these two young people had hope for
The future as each night they slept on a floor of dirt with only togetherness.
They built their home here and have had a long and happy life,
Now In their nineties, they are still active with their family, friends, and each other.
They’ve done a wonderful thing over the years as these kind hearted souls
Adopted more than once giving homes to children, life and happiness, a chance.
To two people who are holding hands watching the sun go down, they would be forever,
Harold and Blanche,
