I saw them again

two unsuspecting people

unknowingly created

such impact

in my life.

they walk hand in hand

gnarled hands clasping each other

those hands which once show

the beauty of youth.

age has dimmed their sights

but their eyes still shine

with the love and devotion

for each other.

the look they share

still carry the passion

even through the passage

of time.

the depth of this spectacle

pierced right into my heart

I couldn't do but wonder

what magic has brought them together?

an extraordinary sight

one exceptional couple

a love so enduring.

"what are you looking at?"

someone asked

I smiled and answered,

"my future."

"Grow old along with me!
The best is yet to be,
the last of life for which the first was made."
