The question is asked, “is there anything more
Beautiful in life than a young couple clasping hands
And pure hearts in the path of marriage? Can there be
Anything more beautiful than young love?”
And the answer is given. “yes, there is a more
Beautiful thing. It is the spectacle of an old man and an
Old woman finishing their journey together on that path.
Their hands are gnarled, but still clasped; their faces are
Seamed, but still radiant; their hearts are physically
Bowed and tired, but still strong with love and devotion for
One another. Yes, there is a more beautiful thing than
Young love. Old love.”
