Just Like Starting Over

Updated on March 7, 2014

The road had taken them

Along these thirty years

But it had not doused

That love light in their eyes

They longed for this night

To be alone

To step back in those lovely memories

With a bottle of champagne

And the music they loved

They sat side by side

To enjoy the show

All the pictures of a lifetime

Flashed upon the screen

They could laugh and cry

And remember why

Then still loved each other so

She knew that she would never be

Complete without him by her side

He knew that she was his dream of a lifetime

Gently he took her to dance

And then they delighted

In the beginning of their love

The first days

The first kisses

And I love you’s

Rose petals strewn on the bed

On their wedding night

And every anniversary there after

From the first baby to the last

Two daughters and a son

They had so many treasures

And blessings in their life

She professed her love for him

And he for her

They knew that life had been good

They also knew that someday

The time might come

When one of them would get left behind

But they knew that even then

They’d still feel their love for one another

It was a night of lots of reflections

A night that stretched back along a starry path

Thirty years and counting

The light in the sky

Surprised them unawares

And sleepily they stumbled up the stairs

Then just as hungry for each other

As the first time they shared

The kisses and the passion

For them it was

Just like starting over
