Ah the impetuousness of youth in all of its grandeur, its dreams
its desires and the passions that rage so uncontrollably bring fond
memories of times past when all was so clear, so black and white.
When all things were known, doubts were few and life was simple
Love was an uncontrollable longing bringing death if it was denied
Burning all things, all bridges in the quest to attain the illusive goal
Oh how slow to learn, not daring to listen to voices who had been there
had in only a such a short time, as quickly died as it had born
Only then beginning to understand, the voices ignored were right all along
No matter our age we are all children to those who have gone ahead
Watching over us with a laughing eye and a sly smile having been there
Where does age begin, in the body or in the mind, or in the heart
Come my love and grow old with me for the best is truly yet to come
for now we have begun to understand, we know truly what love is.
How to enjoy the important things in life without selfishness.
To see in another's eyes their soul and not our own refection.
To seek the happiness of the other first and not as part of our needs
The holding of a heart as softly and gently as one would hold a cloud
Finding the spirit within each singing songs of joy to each other
Souls so in tune to the greatness and majesty of the world full of love
Never to even imagine in their wildest darkest dreams of seeking control
Come my love, for the time left to love seems to be shorter with each day
We have paid our dues and we have learned our painful lessons and now
the missing completeness we have sought for so long is within our grasp
We shall wrap each other in peace and love as the angels smile upon us
Not young, not old, but in a timeless wonder of God's infinite blessing
Eternity shall wrap around us as we soar on golden wings in love forever
