Goodbye Lover, Goodbye Friend

Remember the day...we became friends?
Remember the day...we became boyfriend and girlfriend?
Remember the day...we said our love would never end?
Remember it all, from start to end?

Childhood friends from the age of three.
From the age of fifteen, together, we would be.
And from the age of twenty-five...
Together in holy matrimony.

It makes me think...how from a blink,
Came friendship to love;
A kink here and there, but blessed from above.
And you were always there...when I needed a hug,
A friend; love, sympathy,
Understanding,
And you always forgave me...after lots of ranting.

And then our children...and their children,
And then a great grandchild,
God we'd gotten old, but our love...was still young and fresh.
We could only hope...they'd know love like we do,
Love as much...as I love you.

And yes, I love you,
After all these years,
All the tears,
And the uncertain fears.
I loved you since I said it first,
So much so...my heart could just burst.
Though I admit, for no heart I'm too old,
My heart would just burst, if for one more time, your hand, I could hold.
