As Time Goes By

As time goes by
Life fades to grey
We count our blessings
Day by day
We sleep at night
Wake up at dawn
You are aware
There’s someone there
Heavy breathing from the left
An angel face
All cuddled down
A face that’s been there
All those years
It’s hard to imagine life before
To have some one
That you adore
You slip away
To make some tea
And think again
How life would be
Without that beauty
That soul to love
A thought you never
Want to think
A love you never
Want to leave
A love you want
What can one say?
I love you more and more each day.

To my wife Irene on the occasion of our 47th Wedding Anniversary - I love you.
