Sarah

Put down your book,
Lay your head upon my chest
And talk with me a while.
Can you feel the age-old comfort
Of my touch on your shoulders
And see happiness
In the lines around my eyes,
Which have appeared
On or long journey of smiles.
Although our hands are old
Our fingers still intuitively entwine;
Soul mates until we close our eyes forever.

    So enjoyed this, Andy. When we’re been together for so long it’s so easy to get lost in a book, or sports page and forget to be there for one another. Great reminder.

      Thanks claudia. Knowing your partner so intimately and completely is such a comforting, deeply emotional experience when you take the time to appreciate the little things
