We start a path the day we are born,
Whether we walk in sunshine or storm.
If we are blessed we are given a hand,
To have by our side a good woman or man.
For some the path is smooth as glass,
For others, it’s more like walking on wet grass.
But God never gives us too much to heed,
He helps us find the strength that we need.
We hold on to our partners as the years pass,
We pray with each other at Sunday Mass.
Supporting each other as we stare into eyes,
That know one day will be making goodbyes.
So we hold on to each other hard as we can,
Not even relinquishing to the Most High Man.
Time will pass and we always join again,
When Jesus calls us to Himself in Heaven.
