Curled around him with her head on his chest,
Feeling a heartbeat; a rhythmic message
Too obvious to utter aloud.
Never having felt so peaceful and loved.
His message is crystal clear; yet, inaudible
To the untrained ear.
But her ears have been battle tested.
She hears without question the message.
Laughing together spontaneously,
Amazing how easily they agree.
Half a century, such a long wait,
But well worth it, friends.
…Well worth it indeed.

Wow. Love this. What a story you have to tell. Keep writing.
Photograph-hobbyist here, I really like that photograph of the woods and the person in there. Very nice.
