Splitting from December December Romance, which is when two senior characters meet and fall in love.
Oh, they say that I'm feeble with age, Maggie,
My steps are much slower than then.
My face is a well written page, Maggie,
And time all along was the pen.
Oh, they say that we've outlived our time, Maggie,
As dated as songs that we've sung,
But to me, you're as fair as you were, Maggie,
When you and I were young.
This trope is when a romantic couple is depicted going on into their golden years. If mortality or mental illness is a theme, this is a sure recipe for Tear Jerkers
