Holding hands through life...

Holding Hands






The other day I saw, as I walked

An older couple, side by side

Holding hands as they talked.


I thought of you and me

Holding hands through life

In times of joy and, yes, even adversity.


Slowly and gently, the years will fall

Over us, like crimson rose petals.

And no matter what, through it all


We’ll be together, as lovers and friends

Embraced by love, treasuring the moments

Holding hands, to the end.
