Ten Times Three


Many years have now since passed
at times I thought would never last
now thirty years are well behind,
two kids that once had life defined.

ten times three we have resigned

As we approach those golden years
no longer young and does appear
that up ahead lies what is unknown
as neither can wardoff, postpone.

ten times three a milestone

I look back and have not regret
as every step was done duet
from happiness to heartfelt pain
to raise our children was the campaign.

ten times three we've now attained

The years have somehow washed away
layers of youth, but won't decay
what father time has graced us both
the fortitude of wisdom's growth.

ten times three we did betroth

Hi Karen,
Thanks so much your kindest of comments. Awesome on your 30 years as well and congrats are in order. I wish you many many more. It does just fly with the blink of an eye. I sometimes think, especially after I've written a poem, who cares? Your last comment truly keeps me believing there are peeps out there who do care. Thank You.
