I Keep Thinking About This....

....and hoping that at the end of my life, the same is true for me and My Love

The old couple sat with each in peaceable silence, and no signal was needed for the kettle to go on, or the tea to be poured, the fire tended to.
‘What do you find to do all the time, after all these years?’ someone asked the old lady, ‘don’t you ever tire of each other’s company?’
‘Oh no,’ she replied, ‘you see, it’s like this: I looks at him, and he looks at me, and we’re happy together.’
