Growing Old Together

For my husband….

Staring out the window
Remembering your youth
With no where left to go
A wheelchair now your truth

You think of how you ran
How tall you used to stand
Of how you met your man
And dancing to the band

Not fearing growing old
How strong you used to be
Your face in life was bold
Your body once was free

Now bound into this chair
Thankful for memories
He’s beside you everywhere
Kept as in reverie

You are my dearest friend
Until death do us part
Staying near till the end
You, my love, are my heart

Thank you for loving me
And letting me love you
Our love was meant to be
Until our time is through

I love you with all that I am, now and always.
