As Time Goes By!
there only 14 and love hasn't
entered there mind , they laugh
and play like best friend's always
do things are so simple ,and life is just
starting for them,
Time goes by and there 18 things
have changed and love gets its
chance as they go on there first
date , he holds her hand as there
eyes never move from one another,
how slow time seems to go as they hold
By the time there 21 love has become
something more things have changed even
more , both older one looks a bit older and
has gained a few pounds while as the other
has lost there looks , but things by now dont
really matter because all they see is the one
they fell for.
He goes to war as she stays home watching
the kids at 27 , things by now certainly aren't
made from heaven , as she sits there keeping
the children In there place ,her thought never
falter as she looks to his picture and a tear falls
down her cheek as the word mommy comes from
the kids almost grown, he is safe at home
stories are told with excitement leaving out
the worst parts as they listen with there
minds making images of what he must have went
through , he looks to his wife as they smile and
the love has grown stronger.
The kids have moved out and there in there
40's there youthful looks now gone , wrinkles
now in the place of soft touchable skin , there
at the kitchen table listening to echo's of the past
as he looks to her and tells her how beautiful she is
she leans in and kisses him as they let the moment
Love like this is the best kind of love because
nothing can ever be taken from or added to because
they are bound by more than love , there lives halfway
lived at 65 , he turned to her as they sit by the lake , he
doesnt see some old women there , he only See's the beautiful
angel that had his heart at 18 as he put an arm around her
and kisses her cheek.
Time takes is tole as they lay beside each other under
that oak tree they played around as kids , always being
together for all time as death can cant even touch them
from how there souls are together , becuase there body's
might lay there but still they roam going to the stars and more.
this poem is about love and how it grows with
time , things never change when 2 people are
in love they both could be in there 50's or 60's
yet they still see there significant other as the
beautifull or handsom person they first met they dont
let time change anything for them.
