My excuse for living today,
Rests firmly in the here and now,
My partner and very best friend
Is here sharing every step of the way.
We face the rigours of age and decay
With no other weapons but faith.
Faith that my friend and I
Will overcome anything in our way.
Our families touch our lives,
Entwined and part of us both.
As we gracefully age together
With love and acceptance to all.
My soulmate and I together,
We built our lives with care.
I look and I smile whenever
I turn round and she is there.
We tackle the rocky path together
Without regret or despair.
We need no excuse for each other
Acceptance is always there.
I turn and I look at Margaret
We will always be happy together
Without a single regret to share,
No excuse required.
