our life is not a movie (but maybe)

We are taught to value

The highs and lows

That inspire the movies

That move us

For two hour at a time,

But two hours cannot sum

Up the love of two people

For 50 years;

It cannot sum up

A steady passion

That burns for lifetime,

Which offers no great success,

But great fulfillment.

The highest of highs

And the lowest lows

Of a lifetime will fade,

But character and love

will last forever.
