The trees have been here forever, no different now than they were fifty years ago when we first met.
Do you remember how often we would come here, to sit under their leafy shade, or gaze up through their canopied sky. The stars twinkled bashfully on that magical night when we shyly lost our innocence beneath them. For us, time stood still.
We were alone in a world of our own. No-one could touch or hurt us. The evergreen forest was our protector and guardian, shielding us from the rain or prying eyes.
Years, weeks, days are just words. Day or night, this will always be our special place, where two became one, and love became eternal.
