Would you still love me
When I grew old,
fat, wrinkled?
When my hair is gray
and white, thin?
When I no longer
look attractive?

Would you stay
by my side,
When I cannot recognise
who you are;
To remind me
each day, each hour
who you are
because I suffer from dementia?

Would you promise
to love me for who I am,
for who I will be in the future:
for better or for worse?

I would.
This just came to my mind, and I had to write it :aww:

After I finished university, I lived in England for 1.5 years. I returned to Malta almost 2 years ago. I cant believe we have not talked for so long... Yet it feels like I almost never left. Thank you for your kind welcome and words, like always. 

I am happy you are better, and if you need anything, please do let me know... Best wishes to you.

I've been good thanks! Went to England for 8 days, loved it, and I miss it so much! I have a few photos up from the vacation, if you care to take a look!
How are you? Have you been up to anything in particular this Summer? x

Thank you so much! It is a question everyone in a relationship asks, everyone (or almost!) seems to be scared of growing old alone! x

Who is to say you are no longer attractive when you get older?
Reply

metal-steffi Featured By Owner Jun 1, 2010  Hobbyist Photographer
Well, attractive in the inside, sure.. but in our appearance, as we grow old, we change.. unfortunately not for the better...

It's lovely... and has some questions I've found I've asked myself recently. Finding the person you can grow old with... that's a real trick.
