Logs were added to the campfire,
To keep the fire going a little longer.
I was learning to make smores,
But it was our love that grew stronger.
I nearly declined the invitation.
It was the kind of thing I thought nerdy.
But I’m glad that he was persistent
In wanting to share some smores with me.
Now, as a couple of more than 50 years,
We know that by death we’ll soon be parted.
So, we savor the moments beside a campfire,
Remembering how our love story started.
