we grow old















Toi et moi
Nous vieillirons
dans l'amour, nous

rirons sous la pluie
pleurons ensemble
nous partageons

notre sourire secrèt
sous la lune
sous les etoiles

Cri de joie
dans le soleil
toujours

----------------------

you and i
we shall grow old
in love, we

smile in the rain
cry together
we will share

secretive smiles
under the moon
under the stars

cry out in delight
in the sun
for always

  1. Ninot Ma'am,
    Oh,so nice! Young lovers will forever be young. Only the those around them grow old. Have a funny feeling this is so!

    1. But such a common theme. I am ashamed of myself.

    2. No reason to! It's popular you mean! Always on everyone's lips! Then, it's current and loved by all (where everyone can relate to!)

    1. I hope the passion remains, Brian! But I do not understand life without passion.

  3. A refreshing love....a love the way it was meant to be....now days too many end in divorce. I have a feeling that your love Ninot is one that will pass the test of time....strong and beautiful....one that will be told in beautiful legends of the future. :-)

    1. I hope so too Carrie. This love is shared in between the lines. Love second time round has been good to us.

      I think part of it is that we shield and strengthen our loved ones in the face of life challenges. That is also love, isn't it?
