Love after 65

Mountains and Rivers 131

She helped him out of the bus, when they got close to the hospital. Shaky legs, down the steps, holding her hand. He was limping with a cane, as they crossed the street to the doctor’s office. He had some blood tests, and got some new medication, to live a little longer. He was often dizzy, and got confused sometimes.

After a bus ride back home, they had some frozen dinners, heated in the microwave. She was done with cooking, and he didn’t mind. He was grateful just to be with her. After dinner he went to the freezer and got out the ice cream (his had no sugar). When they sat down in front of the TV, he looked at her and said, “I may get confused, but I know who you are……..and that I will always love you.” She got tears in her eyes, but her wrinkled face was beaming.

She said, “Eat your ice cream old man, cause when you’re done……I’m going to kiss your face!” Now it was his turn to smile, because that is exactly what he was hoping for.

They watched their favorite TV show that night, a British program called, As Time Goes By.

  1. Old age is tough but it could be made easy if you have love of your life with you 🙂 This was a beautiful write up 🙂

  2. Time wait for no one, and I’ve often thought about how my husband and I will be together when we’re older. All I can hope for is good health!

    When I look at seniors and little kids, I can’t imagine being either way. However, I was little so I know I will also be old. Bit scary to consider actually!

    1. Yes I do the same, thinking about my wife and I. Love is the key I think to facing getting old. And when one does go before the other we must still be in love with life. Thank you for all of your wonderful comments, and investing in time reading. I am very blessed. Peace!
