TOGETHER, by            
First Line: He lays his paper by, refills his pipe
Last Line: And such true friends. Oh! These are happy days.
Subject(s): Love - Marital; Relationships; Togetherness; Wedded Love; Marriage - Love

He lays his paper by, refills his pipe,
Gropes for a match, and glancing toward me, says;
"How's my old girl?" I straighten up a bit
From patching overalls, and smiling, look
To catch his answering smile. And then we talk
Of all the things that go to make our life,
Neighbors and business, what the boys have done
Of good and bad. Sometimes we search through years
Hunting for names that once were quickly found;
Perhaps we build a castle -- plan a trip,
Something we'll buy in that delightful day
When money's plentiful. We know so much
Of things in common, it is hard to choose
Just what to talk of. Always, in my heart
There is a warmth of pride, that he still likes
To visit with me. Married all these years
And such true friends. Oh! these are happy days.
