We’ve spent some time along the road,
With grief and heartache as our load.
But travelling this place called life
Called down upon us too much strife.
And then, along that dusty trail,
Just out of sight, we saw the grail.
A reason to go forward, then
We started up our routes again.
We looked across into the eyes
That mirrored love, and such surprise
That, in this universe of life,
We’d found a husband, and a wife.
