Love Poem ~ Decades of Love

.

✰♡*•

I love seeing elderly couples together

Sitting in a park, when there is nice weather.

Smiling and holding each others hand

Or just on a beach, walking on sand.

.

✰♡*•

Their love for each other is the utmost

Celebrating anniversaries – each year a new Toast.

Been through the Good, the Bad and the Ugly

But they got through it all, staying strong for the family.

.

✰♡*•

Sadly such love is hard to find these days

After months of marrying, couples go separate ways.

While the wife takes the man to the Cleaners

The poor man struggles with so many arrears.

.

✰♡*•

.... and so to my readers, I pray you find such love

Pure and peaceful, that’s sent from above.

It’s something you can’t afford to be missing

Having “Decades of love” is truly a blessing.

Nicely written. Just loved it! I'm still waiting on my soul mate, I know that he is on the way, but I patiently await him.

Your poem will serve as one of the tributes to me and my future husband's love.

Lady_E you absolutely amaze me. There I was thinking that you were a 'British Lady' with a stiff upper lip I see that lip is now trembling a little...:) A lovely poem which reminds me that the one regret I have in my life is that I have not grown old with my first love as many of my friends have.However hopefully O will grow old with my current wife. I shall print this poem out for Valentine's Day. Now I know you are a romantic soul. Thank you. Vote up!!

Oh my, Lady, what a marvelous and inspiring poem! The photos are wonderful and my favorite is the last one. I have always been touched by the outward display of love, especially by older couples. It just gives me chills.

This is my favorite of all poems! I am bookmarking it and also sending it to my friends. And while I;m at it...will see that it goes on my facebook page too.

How absolutely wonderful seeing a poem that celebrates the joy and rewards that some couples who remain together through decades of love reap.

My husband and I will be celebrating our 38th wedding anniversary next week, and I can vouch for the wisdom that's embedded in this lovely poem.

Voted up across the board except for funny.
