I Love to See Old Married Couples Hold Hands

They are a testament to how love can last, how it is often transformed, and how important trust is in all relationships! Trust is focal.

It is good to see couples in for the long haul.

THE OLD COUPLE
(c) 2017 Edward York

The old couple walked hand in hand,
As they moved around the park.
I heard him say they had to rush,
Before it got too dark.

His arm had moved around her waist,
Her body was frail and thin.
It resembled the arm that surrounded her,
Encased in wrinkled skin.

His shoulder was a resting place,
For her to lay her head.
She followed every step he made,
No matter where it led.

Young people quickly passed them by,
without acknowledging them at all.
They didn't see that he held her tight,
To protect her from a fall.

It was inspiring to see a love like that,
In a world where it's so rare.
A love that warms the coldest heart,
And can make a cynic care.

I saw the woman one more time,
As she stood trying to be brave.
I watched the tear trickle down her cheek,
As she stood beside his grave.
