New Poetry Saturday...


a young couple walks hand in hand

the wind blows leaves at their feet
their love surrounds and protects them
as they move together down the street

their raised voices shatter the silence
once again, she’s angry and he’s wrong
being married isn’t what they thought
but together is where they belong

it seems like every day is a struggle
one crisis or problem after another
there’s never enough time or money
yet they only want to be with each other

everyone wants to know their secret
how they’ve managed so many years
they remember to say i love you
through both the laughter and the tears
