us, together

we walk side by side,
stand and talk,
sit and be silent.

are you thinking
what I’m thinking?
it doesn’t matter.

each of us knows
the other is there.
always. so we vowed.

the years move by
and we move within;
together for good.

love grows; even when
money shrinks;
hair turns gray.

of all the people
in all the world,
so glad I found you.

Someone’s above–
brought us together;
keeps us that way.

life isn’t pretty,
always; but you and I
are a beautiful thing.
