Different times, different ways.

Different times, different ways.

A Poem by Dawn

Admiration to couples that via
good times and bad
that stick together.

With or without children.
And last the test of time
until old age together.

In this modern age,
it's just short term relationship
that last a few years,
and have children
and then split and
then go.
Their own ways afterwards.

And the poor child/children
if lucky going between
two homes.
For visits and to see the other parent.

I think back to my parents.
Who stood together
no matter what.
Was thrown at them both.

Different times, different ways.

It certainly is true. The relationships these days seem to be so temporary. It is almost as though they are just matters of convenience. On the other hand, Millie and I will be celebrating our 57th this August. On the other hand, I honestly don't know how she has tolerated me this long. Lucky me.
Dawn - I hope that all is well with you and your relationships.
Take care - Dave
