The decades have surely fallen,
And I still can’t believe it is so,
But that reflection that I see in the mirror,
Looks like somebody that I should know.
In the dark of night,
When I hold you,
I get no sense of life having passed us by,
As I’m content to curl up and hold you,
Until well-past the morning light.
When I caress your skin so tender,
And kiss your lips so sweet,
It feels almost like we are kids again,
Without the need to be discreet.
So we have been given a few things to consider,
And consider them we will,
And as soon as we’ve negated the threats that they pose,
Then it is right back to our cheap thrills.
Your perspective, my dear, was the best one,
When we think about what could be your loss,
That as long as your life is not threatened,
We will pay whatever the cost.
For us, all we long for is life,
And many years that we’ll be together,
We’ll sit on the porch in our rocking chairs,
And simply love each other forever.
