MOMENTS SO SHORT

An old married couple was asked one day

what made their marriage so strong…

What has kept them together all of these years?

Why has it lasted so long?

 

They immediately began describing moments…

moments neither one would dismiss…

When he wipes a tear from my cheek….

When she sneaks up and steals a kiss.

 

When he hugs me for no reason at all…

When we pass and she touches my hand…

The scent of her on on my clothing…

A walk on the beach with our toes in the sand…

 

How he brushes the hair from my face…

The way she calls out my name…

The smile on his face when our eyes meet

The smile on hers is the same…

 

They went on and on for a while

with too may reasons here to report

proving a marriage so vibrant…so long

 

is made up of countless moments so short.
