Forever Young

After all said and done,

When the hairs on our heads are all white and grey,

When the wrinkles on your face

Still make me want to kiss you so,

Cos you’re still so full of beauty and grace,

Like the sun over a million years


After all said and done,

When at the turn of the first half of our century together,

With our children playing in our beautiful yard with their children,

We’re still so much in love like the very first moments,

I want it to be said that we stuck with each other

Like the clouds to the sky


Cos you and me are inseparable earthlings

Connected with one heart, body, soul and spirit.

  5. @Adaobi, Thanks. The import of that line is that beauty from the inside is ageless, and it shows on the outside, wrinkles or not.
    @Raymond, LOL.

  6. Wow! Sweet poem. This could be a poem to motivate someone to keep loving. I love it. Beautifully written…and I like that it doesn’t sound unreal.
