The Retired Bloke

Locked in Love

Two hearts

Learning to beat

As one

Love growing stronger

Our time on earth

Is not done

My hope 

My desire 

Our energy


Like a smoking gun 

Nothing will ever, ever

Tear us apart

The padlock

To our hearts

Locked together forever!

    and happiness here with us RB.

      Thank you Fay. I am so fortunate to have had a lifelong partnership which has grown closer as every year has passed.

      Very good write. I too have the same thought about my wife and my life together, "Locked together forever!"

      A fine write RB. But the lock of my sweetheart and I was shattered ages ago. But how? Cos I sang to her. She chucked a boot at me and walked out. Thought it was two cats fighting, but it can't be helped. lol.
