I’m Grateful We Happened

I'm grateful we happened.
We met and you wanted to court me.
My dad was a tough lock to break.
You were very determined, finally my father gave me to you.
We had our fights, laughs, and many cries.
We loved each other though, sometimes we hated each other.
Kids came into the picture.
Lots and lots of kids.
28 years passed, that fast?
Kids are grown up and out of the house.
It's just you and me now, again.
Another 15 years past, time really didn't wait.
Grandma and grandpa is what they call us.
Health issues start to kick in.
Then another 10 kicked in.
It was almost your end, so we started to discuss back then when.
We laughed, loved, prayed, and cried.
We fought until the other back down.
Of course you always gave in.
Time surely did us good, don't you think?
It is time to say good bye to each other.
Our time has come to an end
But only a temporary end, until we meet again.
It is time to go now, stop playing around.
Oh wait, before you go,
I'm grateful we happened.
Goodbye.for now, until we happen again.
