Lily and Mac,
Caught in black and white,
A moment in time,
Now everlasting.
February 14th, 1921,
Their wedding photo,
Mac so dapper in his suit,
Lily so beautiful
In her dress and bouquet.
So young,
So much of their life ahead of them,
But the years roll by,
And time takes its toll.
Yes, the years flew by,
So quickly,
No longer do I visit them
At their nice white house on Thomas Street,
But rather, at their gravesites.
Though I talk to them,
No longer do they answer me,
All I hear is the silence
Of time passing by.

February 14, 1921,
They recite their vows
So poetically, so earnestly, so lovingly,
In the face of God,
And all who witnessed.
Now a moment in time,
Captured in
Black and white,
Sits upon my desk,
Such a tender reminder
Of those I loved.
Mac so dapper,
Lily so beautiful,
Both so young,
Joined in an eternal
Love affair.
Children came,
Grandchildren came,
Great- grandchildren came,
And they,
Still joined
In an eternal love affair.
Yet death stole one away,
And soon the other.
But their eternal love affair
Goes on.
Now, I sit at their gravesites,
I speak,
Yet no longer do they answer,
All there is,
Is the silence of time passing by,
And a ghostly feeling,
Of an eternal love affair.

"The greatest warriors are the ones who stand for peace." H. Near
