As they face the day together
Side by side in twilight years
There may not be a tomorrow
But they really have no fears

While she toils in the garden
She is with her all the way
Then they sit in the evening
To watch the squirrels play

As the darkness falls around them
They relax with a sigh
As they feel another's presence
They know that Love is nigh

Life is real and earnest
She is twelve she's seventy-three
But age doesn't matter
To her little dog and her
