Finding the Love of a Lifetime

Coming out of the shadows

into the bright sunlight

they collided and stood still

she looked up into piercing blue eyes

her heart seemed to stand still

he smiled rather awkwardly

apologized and was on his way

she couldn’t stop thinking of him all day long

he was like a vision

she wandered into the park

to sit and to contemplate

to wonder if she would ever see him again

just when she thought her life was in order

now it was in chaos

she wanted him

at least to get another look

then a shadow fell across the bench

and she looked up like a startled bird

and there he was

and he smiled

told her he wanted another look

she had taken a hold of this mind and his heart

the romance was on

and it couldn’t have made the day more perfect

hours later they were still walking hand in hand

through the park

funny but they didn’t see the flowers

the other people

only one another

they fit together so perfectly

you had to admit

their love was heaven sent

as the years and anniversaries went by

it was upon this very day when they met

that they would go walking in the park

as silver strands replaced the gold

and their walk was slower

together they were happy

keeping each other young

sill loving one another

year after year
