Love ....However long it takes.....

"If it takes all night .....that'll
be alright
Hey ! No one thought it would take
forever

But if something solid comes
back around
And we find ourselves
on solid ground

Then lets just call it love

But if the lonely nights go on to near
to forever
And we just can't stand anymore stormy
weather

Perhaps we'll begin to tear away
at each other
And not even care whether or not
we'd ruther

Then lets just call it love

What ?

Yes , just maybe it should be love no
matter what it's called by someone watching
Hey we've been together for something like
forever ........we must be matching !

Up's
Down's
Turning back arounds
We managed to hang in
there

You're mad tonight ......
and last week I had it right
You'll always be the winner though
I'm still here

Lets just call it love ......


I wrote this thinking of my parents marriage , something beyond fifty years and from some of the worse days to about the best , the most tragic times all the way through to the so -called golden years ! They fought , they bled , they lived hard , fast and they lost too. ten kids later and maybe thirty grandbabies ! In the end they lived and died , for the love of each other !

ahorseback..wow..what a lovely thing to write for your parents....that's the trouble with marriage and relationships today...too much work...however, maybe more consideration should take place before the relationship or marriage becomes final...Just my thoughts....

What a beautiful tribute to your parents, ahorseback! I often wonder if the future holds this kind of real, lasting love and commitment a thing of rarity. It's a wonderful thing to see couples live and love their whole lives committed to one another come-what-may. Beautiful!

Voted up and awesome. A wonderful tribute to your parents. Reminds me of my godfather and his wife. They've been together for a lifetime and more and still together and still enjoy their children and grandchildren. He's 91 and she's 81. I believe for people like this including your parents it's God's blessing that they can be together for so long.

It's so easy these days to just call it quits. They survived the good, the bad, and the ugly..Great tribute..
