They walked together, hand in hand
on golden days in May
and reveled in the surf and sand
and frolicked in ocean spray.
They shared a bond through many years
and weathered good and bad
They held each other as wet tears
fell when their times were sad.
They saw their children off to school
and then out on their own
they taught them with a golden rule
that kept their hearts at home.
And through it all, She never failed
not even when her tasks
were harder cause her body ailed
as she put her comfort last.
And when her time was at an end
and he lay her body down
He knew his spirit would never mend
as He placed her in the ground.
They had rejoiced through Summer
and were mesmerized in Fall
They'd shared their warmth in Winter
and were bonded by it all.
And now He savors memories
through the lonely hours of day
and remembers the surf and emerald seas
and those golden days in May.
