Hardly a need for words

Since it was always very clear

In all their actions and efforts 

The strength of the love there

Where they always had laughter

And so much tenderness shared

With a mutual understanding 

Of how much they both cared

What they took time to discuss 

Where those secretly held desires

Which had become obvious 

Their togetherness had inspired 

There was nothing ordinary

Or clear cut in their relationship 

Which had naturally grown

Out of many years of friendship 

They had changed each other

In so many very positive ways

So obvious with the affection

That they consistently displayed

There was one simply thing

They demanded of each other

Was that they remain committed 

To ensuring it lasted forever
