What Is Love?

What is love?

Often used to display affection

So many doifferent meanings

It sometimes is used as protection


Most love and move on

And some stick together

Standing strong through each and every storm

For they have learned to adapt to the weather


No relationship is perfect 

There will be ups and down

The key through it all

Is occasionally shedding stress like you are losing pounds


Sixty-two years and counting 

For your family, a legacy you have built 

Still adding flavors to this melting pot

Better yet, memories to an unfinished quilt


From your kids to your grandchildren

To the great-grand and extended

What you two have started

Is a long way from being finished


Looking at the word love

And seeing you two together for so long

It leads me to this final question...

How do you keep the torch burning so strong?
