Together Through Life

I'm a writer, a poet, a dreamer. Born and raised in New York City. I now live in Daytona Beach, Florida with my wonderful cat Sid.

together-through-life

Together we walk this world,

that’s ever spinning.

Some days it leaves us screaming -

but mostly we just keep on dreaming.


You and I together,

like lost orphans in a storm,

wondering if there will be a tomorrow –

as crazier the world becomes.


Forever searching,

for that cloud with the silver lining,

never seems to be the right timing,

but we still keep on smiling.


Days when this roller coaster ride,

gets out of hand,

sending us scattering wide -

wondering if we’ll survive.


Then days when things are peaceful,

like circling round on a Wonder Wheel,

looking at all the beauty that surrounds us –

what a great feel.


No matter what may come,

no matter when,

as long as we have our love -

I know we’ll be alright.


Every morning is bright,

even the rainy days,

as long as you and I are together through life -

giving each other a shoulder to lean on.


What does it matter?

That this world is turning cold,

we must face it and be bold -

I am yours and you are mine.


You make me smile,

at the worst of times,

if I cannot reply or I‘m misty eyed -

I still know it will be alright.


In this world, we are a pair,

not good one without the other.

If I seem to drift away,

I know that I’ll still hear your call –

together through life with you, I treasure.


So through it all,

we walk uphill,

struggling to find -

that pot of gold at rainbows end.


It’s always good to know,

that I am yours and you are mine,

should the world turn against us,

we will survive,

our love will keep us alive –


together through life just you and I.


If life should throw us for a loop,

then the one who is left behind,

must remember the best of times,

the love most divine –

till together we are in eternity.

This is beautiful, Rasma. I love the rhyming rhythm. You've been through a lot, but I see you healing through each word you write.

Thank you, Bill. I hope you both are having a great weekend and the whole barnyard is doing the dance of joy.

The image of constantly walking uphill was powerful and yes, that's what it seems at times, but the struggle is worth it when taken with someone you love. Beautiful, Rasma!
