Every Sunday morning
You can be sure to see
The beautiful old couple
Sitting in pew three.

I can't help but notice
The love in his eyes
Not just for his bride
But his God lifted high.

The strong bond between
This man and his wife,
It's something I'll strive for
My entire life.

I sometimes notice
My thoughts drift away,
I think of their love
And forget to pray.

We say the Lord's Prayer,
The church as a whole,
Her hand in his,
They pray with their souls.

He steals a glance
At the woman on his arm,
He smiles and blinks
As a tear causes alarm.
