Garden of Forever

The Garden of Forever
Is in full bloom today:
Two souls join hands
And dance beneath the sun’s rays.
Their music is birdsong,
The fragrance of roses close,
Gliding on lightest feet
Two people I loved the most.
An audience of luscious greenery,
Colours so true and clear,
Cloudless skies revealing
This couple I hold most dear.
Seventy years of marriage
Would have been celebrated today,
A candle is shining brightly
Loving memories sent their way.
Time is not a barrier,
Now, no longer apart,
The Garden of Forever
Is always in my heart.
I miss you both ❤ ❤ ❤

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
