I Over Heard Something Beautiful Today

I heard something beautiful today.
I was sitting on a bench under a tree
along a wooded path,
when I heard two lovers talk
as they came near me
along the wooded path.
She said she hoped he'd never go
until she'd passed away
for she was to weak to go alone
and he said that he'd not go
until her life was gone
because she was his morning
and she was his sun.
That she'd never face a day alone.
What love this couple has I thought
As these endearing words I caught.
I envisioned them as lovers in a fairy tale,
Him tall and dark, her small and pale.
So when they chanced to pass my way
I looked to see such young lovers.
But this is what I saw,
an elderly man with eyes now dim
an elderly lady accompanying him.
This is what I saw,
The beauty of an ageless love
Blessed by Goddess above
Endless even in old age.
And somehow I knew there was no gage
By which to measure this
My wish for them is one of eternal bliss.
Yes, I heard something beautiful today
And I'm better for it crossing my way.
