MagPie 92

Woodward/Newman

Eternity is relevant
Children dream, grow, leave
True Love lasts a lifetime and beyond
Bringing with it the gift of never growing old
An ability to maintain the age when first you fell in love

The soul remains young and strong even as the body ages
It is with our souls that we love

Throughout time situations have changed
But Love has remained to define mankind from all others
Once truly given, Love is forever

C Hummel Kornell

  10. This is a wisdom I came to late, unfortunately for all concerned! Newman and Woodward had it and stuck against all the odds faced by their peers.
