Every Time She Looked

Every time she looked,

he couldn’t get any better.

He was the guy she adored

and her world belonged to him.

He’d be there keeping her from being sad,

through every day,

through the good and the bad.

She could count on him,

from friend to lover to husband

and their love was forever sealed.

He was always there,

never did she have to fear,

from baby to baby,

from year to year.

She knew he would be there,

giving her the love she needed,

holding her hand and loving her.

The years that went by,

didn’t matter to them.

They were always together,

through rain and through shine.

The kids grew up,

the grandkids came.

They grew old together

and still in love.

 

When the strands of silver,

wove through the gold,

they knew that the path they walked,

had shortened by a stretch.

Still so much more to share,

they still had no care,

for together they were younger than their years,

still blowing bubbles in the wind,

singing happy songs,

dancing through the night

and in the spring rains.

Now as the twilight years have come,

their love has mellowed like fine wine.

Together they’ve built a life,

overcoming every strife.

Even now her husband,

still looks to her as he once did.

The years haven’t taken a thing –

 

every time she looked.
