We shall share the joy and hardships in the same boat, and when the most ferocious storms and rains are past, we shall be left with nothing but joy, peace, and serenity. We will recount the moments together, and take our love boat out on a scenic ride, where nothing in the world matters anymore, because there are just you and I.
Grandma still whisper sweet nothings into grandpa’s ears despite the many years have passed.
Nothing beats having a loving life companion till the end of time. Although youth may have been long gone, the hearts of the loving people remain the same as they first fell in love with each other.
I have planned to work on this pair of loving old couple for more than a year now. I have finally made it to the point to do this, there is a Chinese proverb that I find perfectly suitable to be used on them:
In the most plain and direct translation, it would mean staying in the same boat regardless of wind (or storm) or rains. It really means sharing hardships together.
I used to collect old couple figurines in the past, made of different materials. For those who have been following my blog for a bit now, you will know that I am a worshipper of fairy tales. However, if ‘happily ever after’ is too far-fetched in this reality, being able to grow old together with your life companion, is probably the next best romantic thing that could ever happen.
Many a times, couples are able to reap on the fruit of success, yet unable to sustain the relationship when the storms arrive. Perhaps, I am always hopeful that every marriage lasts till the end, and every vow of love remains true as it was made.
With this design, I wish all love and friendship last forever.
