What Matters.


There may come that time,

That time when we get to the end,

Get to the end of our lives together

And our Spirits move on,

Move on together for eternity.

But when we do we will know

That the possessions we had,

The house that was our home,

And all we had around us

Just will not matter.

But what will matter,

And will always matter

Is that I had you

And you had me

And we always will.
