TOGETHER

They stand together
Confronting the unknown.
Not facing inward at each other
But outward at the future,
Together.

Through the years they have grown.
For, once they found the right person,
Each life became a journey
To becoming the right person.

And they grew.
Not experiencing life alike, but experiencing it together.
Not growing alike, but growing together.
Not thinking alike, but thinking together.
Each more unique with each experience,
Yet each becoming more united with the other.

Through good times and lean,
They had no one to lean on,
Save for each other.
Life gave no rewards,
No punishments,
Just consequences
for decisions made.
Sometimes to be relished.
Sometimes to be endured.
Always together.
