I sit beside my fire today,
And think of yesteryear.
When you and I were young and gay-
And you were always near.

The plans we made, the vows we spake
That we would never keep-
The paths we took, the choices made,
The tears we both would weep.

The choices, aye; the lonely miles-
When we were not together,
The bridges burned, along with styles
The moaning winds, and weather.

The news I heard, of wedding vows-
My face now lined with care.
The blade of years has carved my brows
With wrinkles and to spare.

I love you still, or think I do-
Thatís neither here, nor there..
Itís only fitting, win or lose?
To love a maiden fair.

This is AMAZING!!! You have dug deep and come up with something very beautiful G.S. I loved it!!


 Hold me for yesterday
Kiss me for tomorrow
But love me for today.

Gunslinger-

Oy! This is really good. I love how you use the 'cracker' phrases in your rhyming. Gives it a real 'country' feel.

Here, you've eloquently touched on the axiom:  Tis better to have loved and lost than to have never loved at all, GS.  And, once again, nicely done!

Hi Gunslinger,

This is wonderful, I love to hear people after so many years together still in love, its refreshing.

Thank you for sharing,
