For Phly and to Rae

Although seconds ultimately become years

Fairytale laughter turns into real-life tears

Grey age arrives and green youth disappears

Yet real love grows and yes it stays{{more}}

Warm spring changes to winter’s cold

There’s nothing new that shan’t be old

A story is stale once it has been told

Yet love rust not but turns to gold

Night always conquers the most splendid day

Roses bloom a while then fade away

A sunset kisses good-bye the sunlight rays

Yet love has no limits only endless pathways

Mountains get lower as the clocks chime

Rivers flow by with the passing time

Nature marches on to its rhythm and rhyme

Yet love remains in our hearts and our minds

Yes everything changes as we travel life road

Sometimes it’s a burdened and a heavy load

While faith and hope make the shoulders broad

Without love we’d be all washed overboard

Sure we can full our brains with all there’s to know

And accumulate riches that multiply and grow

But love in the heart is what easies our woes

Yes through the beauty of love the human glows
