The Twilight Years

When evening shadows fall
Another day is through,
This is the special time
I like to share with you.

In the autumn of our lives
We look back without regret,
For fate had deemed it right
When you and I first met.

We've had our share of problems;
Passed through stormy weather;
Yet in these our twilight years,
It's so good to be together.

I'm happy when you're smiling
Though I know you are in pain,
Yet with amazing patience
You never once complain.

The years are passing swiftly
There's so much we want to do,
But whatever things we face,
Our love will see us through.

Dedicated to my husband Noel.
