As We Age, Love Also Grows And Grows Stronger!

Your first love,

Your first friendship,

Your first joke,

Your first toy~~~~~

~~~~~~are but simple joys,

that have stayed years after,

those moments are gone.

------x-------x------x------x--------

They remain,

to comfort long after,

the kids of our kids,

are born!

As we age, love becomes stronger!
As we age, love becomes stronger! | Source

If it comes from Heart, It touches the Heart!

Love grows with time!

Still the memories are fresh,

When we met first,

How little did I know then,

It would be difficult,

To live without you,

Even for a moment.

----------x---------x------------

Remember the day,

When we promised each other,

That we can't fix every problem,

But we will face them together,

Bonding grows stronger with children around!
Bonding grows stronger with children around! | Source

True love grows even stronger with time.

See results

Old Is Gold And Lovelier!

Growing old together has been fun,

Passing all the trials and tribulations,

Still holding each others hands.

----x-------x---------x---------x-------x-----

Perhaps we love each other more,

Much more than yesterday,

But perhaps less than tomorrow!

      This was a true treasure to find chitrangadaSharan; How wonderful it must feel to find your soulmate- your rib- who makes you feel so complete. Its truly rare and should be valued above anything else.

      Beautiful poem. Yes. I do believe love grows stronger with time. This year I will have been married to my husband for 30 years and I have to say the love I have for him is stronger today than yesterday. I love the song, "Endless Love." We played the Lionel Richie version at our wedding, but I enjoy this instrumental version much more.

      True love remains forever as said and seen over the lifetime...Some folks forget about words that can comfort their love. They believe that materials only are the means to show their love. Such people don't have any sense of how to love and show their affection.

      Chitrangada Sharan 2 months ago from New Delhi, India

      I completely agree with you Radhika! It is important to express love sometimes by words or actions , by caring --It works as a reassurance that is very much required by both the partners.

      Thanks for reading and sharing your thoughts! Much appreciated!
