Topic: Love Goes On.
Thursday 9th May, was Ann and my 38th anniversary, so I wanted to celebrate that with a poem which would describe my continued feelings for the love of my life, Ann. It's not very strict as far as metre is concerned and doesn't rhyme very well (or at all) but I thought it worthy of a place on Chordie. Hope all that read it like it.
Love Goes On. Phill Williams.
We've been together now for almost all of 40 years.
There is no doubt for all to see the love we share.
Soulmate is a word overused and falling short.
For others, not for us, it is plain how much we care.
You mean the world to me my love.
Without you I would be no more.
I'm amazed at how you've stood by me.
When most would simply go.
I know I've been a fool at times.
I know I've let you down.
But my heart is always in your hands.
So I'll always be around.
We argue and we disagree, not speaking for a day or two.
But always when the anger fades.
Hand in hand we walk the lanes.
Walk the lanes of summer love, whatever the season.
Small birds sing.
The breeze blows warm.
The sun shines bright.
And our love goes on.
