A Poem in My Pocket

There’s a poem in my pocket,
It’s worth more than gold,
I’ve made several copies,
For the original is old.

I carry it with me,
To countries afar,
It keeps you beside me,
Wherever you are.

You wrote words of love,
That was fifty years past,
We knew, even then,
It was destined to last.

You talked of our dreams,
Most have come true,
Because of goals shared,
Between me and you.

We’re full of wrinkles,
And our walk is now slow,
But, whenever you smile,
Your face is aglow.

I know it by heart,
This poem that you said,
For me and for all,
On the day that we wed.

  1. Yum, that's a warm and enriching one!
    Thank you for sharing your work.

  2. Thank you for giving me a really warm heart.
    Memories are one of the property.

    There is the happiness in a heart.
    Yes, I do not see them.
    However, there is surely them.

    I thank for your always admiring my calligraphy.
    I am glad that I was able to meet a good understanding person you.

    From the Far East.
    Best regards.

  6. ρομπερτ - I wrote this poem, hoping that my son, Alex, who marries May 7th, will truly have a lifetime of happiness. It seems pretty rare in this world today but they had their first date six years ago so I will cross my fingers ( and
    pray ) that they will have fifty years ( or
    nmore ) of love.
