Moulded together in love and pain
They were always by each other’s side
That’s how for life they chose to remain
Each to the other was their pride.
Heartaches came and went yet still
They were steadfast in their love
Held together by their simple will
They fitted like a hand in a glove.
They aged and their bodies grew fragile
Yet that love still carried them along
As a thing that was always so, tactile
It sustained, it was so very strong.
And then one day they were there no more
But their love was now so cast in stone
That devotion to each other went right to the core
As holding hands they passed into the unknown.
