They fell in love as children…

people said it wouldn’t last

“You are mistaking love for friendship .” they said…

“and in time…this ‘love’ will pass.”


They stayed in love through all their schooling…

people said it wouldn’t last

“You’re mistaking real love for puppy love.” they said…

“and puppy love won’t last.”


They married, had a family and 

people stopped saying it wouldn’t last

Still, they knew to cherish every moment together 

they knew the years would flow by fast.


Their children all are grown, 

many grandchildren they’ve amassed

and they smile every time they kiss…remembering


when people said it wouldn't last.
