True Companion

Sands of time drift silently by us,
yet here we are climbing invisible mountains carelessly left behind,
alone; yet never alone
true companions . . .

Evening hours sift seamlessly into the bleak tranquility of dawn,
and here we are once again,
facing truth and light, overwhelmed . . .
but still impossibly together
true companions . . .

the Years grow wings, birds leave the nest and
here we are, holding hands, in some kind of crazy love
taking this life day by crazy day
the best way we know how . . .
just me and you,
my one true companion –
and I love you . . .

When the rain is blowing in your face
And the whole world is on your case
I would offer you a warm embrace
To make you feel my love

When the evening shadows and the stars appear
And there is no one to dry your tears
I could hold you for a million years
To make you feel my love

I know you haven’t made your mind up yet
But I would never do you wrong
I’ve known it from the moment that we met
There’s no doubt in my mind where you belong

I’d go hungry, I’d go black and blue
I’d go crawling down the avenue
There ain’t nothing that I wouldn’t do
To make you feel my love

The storms are raging on the rollin’ sea
Down the highway of regret
The winds of change are blowing wild and free
But you ain’t seen nothing like me yet

There ain’t nothing that I wouldn’t do
Go to the ends of the earth for you
Make you happy, make your dreams come true
To make you feel my love

~Still crazy after all these years (go figure) . . . here’s to another 24

  1. I hope the next 24 go by a little more slowly. They say time flies when your having fun- we must be having a ball! Happy Anniversary Michael! Love, Pam

    Slow is a really good word. I’d love to be able to use it more to define our life.
    Love you always, kiddo.


  2. Congratulations to you both.
    I have a long way to go for 24 years but who knows you are right Pam, the 7 that I have spent married have gone very quickly.
    Thanks to both of you for sharing your Love with us.
    Have a great day and many great (if slower) years to come.

    Slower years? God, we can only hope.
    I’ll stop by soon to see you, Spaz.


  3. 24 years is a long time to put up with your ass. Pam should go up for sainthood. Congrats to her for such fortitude. 😉

    Saint Pamela? Yeah, it has a ring to it.
    She says ‘thanks’ for the congrats . . . :0)


  4. this brought a tear to my eye michael…longevity in marriages is not my forte as you know, but it’s so nice to see others succeed first time and still be ecstatic about it after 24 years…
    i’m with evyl…give the girl a medal
    just joshin’….hope your day was wonderful…sorry i’m late…

    No worries, Moe, as far as commenting. I’m so guilty for my blog commenting absence lately. {no time}
    Pamela and I have definitely succeeded in the longevity department. I’m one lucky bastard.


  5. i keep telling you…time is a predator…we just never seem to know where it goes…we’re much the same, so don’t feel bad, or guilty…noone is going anywhere…

    I still do feel guilty.
    We need a 36 hour day . . . yeah, right. 😉


  6. Congratulations Michael…wishing you many more years of wedded bliss. Yes you are one lucky dude….from what I is she.
    She must be a wonderful person…just keep on ‘keeping on’.

    Believe me, I know it.
