A little old man and his little old wife..Sat together on a cute little swing
holding hands looking at their wedding rings...While they looked into each others eyes he kissed her cheek...He said Dear, you still hold the key to this old heart..

Your radiant beauty still takes this old mans breath away..Your, still all I want even today...I know in my heart we will never part....I love you old woman that is for sure your in this old man's heart for good..

The old woman looked with a twinkle and tear in her eyes...She said, why
your as strong as you always been..So handsome and your such a man...a
kind man, a loving man...A man that really cares, oh to think its been 60 years today...we gave each other our hearts on this Valentine's Day..

Sixty years! the old man said with a twinkle in his eyes..I would have never guessed it was sixty years! I thought it was more like, seventy five..
He roared with laughter as he helped his bride up..

She said Old man I love you...You, are still such a brat..You, make me still make me laugh...His eyes were twinkling with so much
love..Old woman lets see what your really made of...Lets see if you still have it in you...He turned their favorite song on, the one that was played
sixty years ago their wedding it was their first dance.

He bowed to his lady in took her in his arms...He said Old lady may I have this dance? She looked at him and said get in line Old man, I will see if I can fit you in...

She roared with laughter and said nowwwww, how many years does it seem like? He said Old woman wasn't it just yesterday? She shook and threw her head back with laughter.. He slowly touched her cheek and ever so lightly brushed his lips on hers...They began, to sway back and forth they danced in each others arms...He said with so much admiration your
still as graceful as ever...

I don't know how, but you are more beautiful, old lady then the first day we met...God, I'll love you forever...You keep this old mans heart beating..He
whispered in her ear, I love you Darling...she whispered back I love you dear..

Their lips brushed together once more...At the same time they said Happy Valentine's Day Dear.... He, handed her a box, she opened it..He said it isn't much but it sure comes with all my love...She looked inside the box she pulled out a key on a long red string...He said Old lady, it is the key to this old mans heart...I love you darling..

With tears in her eyes, tears streaming down her face, she said ya old fool here is my present to you...He opened his present, he couldn't believe his
eyes... He pulled out a key on a big red string...He read the card inside.. It said I really love you old man...This key is to my heart ..its forever and always, we will never part..

With tears running down their faces they embraced...The old man said Happy Valentine's Day Darling...She said Happy Valentine's Day Dear..
