Holding hands together

Updated: Aug 15



Whenever I see an old couple,

I pause.


I imagine all they have experienced jobs,

maybe children, worries, vacations, homes,

disappointments, tragedies, joys.


I see their entwined fingers.


I see them walking in perfect cadence,

comfortable in being quiet.


I see in them the gentle joy

that a lifetime of loving can give.


And I look forward to

the privilege of growing old

and holding hands with you.
