By 1950, the Cushways has been together
A full sixty-two years.

They met when he was an old twenty eight
And she pushing twenty two.

He always talked the talk
Sometimes she listened to his goings on.

Always they held hands,
Even in these later years.

They brought ten into the world
Yet their legacy was together.

Never arguing, never worrying,
Always looking out for each other.

They kept it real,
Having a smoke or drink from time to time

But it was their love
Keeping them alive

Something they readily shared
With each other for their first sixty-two years together.
