Our Life

Updated on July 15, 2012

We met upon a corner
So many years ago.
We spoke for just a moment,
Then I turned to go.

Perhaps it was your smile,
Perhaps fate played its part
But I discovered lasting love
Deep within my heart.

That was the beginning
Of a long and happy life
That we have shared together
As devoted man and wife.

We've had our days
Of sorrow as well as happiness,
Days spent within the little home
Our children came to bless.

Our children were to us such joy;
Too soon they left the nest
To settle in their own homes;
We wish them happiness.

Now we're still together,
Enjoying each new day.
So glad that on that corner
I didn't walk away.

      Destiny is something when you have the impulse of not letting something or someone go. The last lines reflect that. Beautiful poem.
