“It’s raining hard !”

Can I hitch a ride ?”

“Sure ! My umbrella’s wide,

I can fit you inside !”

The downpour’s over

And the sun’s out again,

But we’re still clinging.

I do  like your grin!

DIDN’T IT GO BY AWFULLY FAST ?

The ground is all white,

Our mountain top’s calling.

I’ll follow you down,

Please help !

I’m falling !

It’s fun if we ski

When there’s just you and me !

I’ll build you a snowman

Three feet high.

His nose is a carrot,

It points to the sky!

It’s cold and I love you !

What more can I say ?

The woods are dark,

I’m glad we’ve lost our way !

DIDN’T IT GO BY AWFULLY FAST ?

The warm, perfumed night

Sports a full silver moon.

You take my hand,

We make love in a mirrored room.

You tell me a tale

And I laugh like a child.

We make love again,

Am I beguiled ?

DIDN’T IT GO BY AWFULLY FAST ?

We build a house

Big enough for two.

I tend the garden,

The rest is for you!

Decades pass, the years creep by

On little cat feet.

Isn’t time sly ?

We’re still here together,

A grumpy old pair.

But we’ll bear each other.

There’s love in the air.

DIDN’T IT GO BY AWFULLY FAST ?

The end is near.

I hold your hand.

The nurse hovers by you,

Where can I stand ?

You can’t say a word,

There are tubes everywhere.

The room smells stale.

More than I can bear !

But your eyes smile

And tell me

That you are at rest.

These  fifty years together,

They’ve been the best !

DIDN’T IT GO BY AWFULLY FAST !
