a lifetime ago

a lifetime ago a slim brunette fell in love
with a brash young man
they married, had children
and twenty years later fell out of love
a common tale, but true

the story doesn’t end there, though
she got a second chance to love
met a man with a good heart
someone who loved kids
and loved her as she was
accepted her and encouraged her
to grow, develop, change and improve

now they’re seniors, but still together
still in love and growing old together
on this journey we call life
each problem looked at
as an opportunity and blessing
to give and receive love
to be there for each other
until the angels call them home
