Together – Daily Prompt


I have known you for a long time
Through thick and thin we’re together
We’ve been working out the answer

More seas to swim, mountains to climb
More adventures and challenges
More photos to take, more kisses

Cooking with rosemary and thyme
Lots of curries and stir-fries
Together with our lows and highs

The warm breeze whispers through the chimes
Such a melody we produce
When we fight, we’ve got to have truce

We fight but make up at teatime
One shouts, the other one listens
Life’s not perfect but we have fun*
