When I say so, you act like Iíve flipped,
as if in my dottage I have lost
my tenuous hold on reality, free
falling into the abyss of dementia:
But I still find you beautiful, and desirable
and sexy after all the struggles of 3 kids,
after the turmoil of 30 years of marriage:
the moves, the failures, the estrangements,
the coming back together, the loss of
communication, and its renewal, the unshared
experiences, the crises and the joy the growth.
After all that I still love you as passionately
as a young man but as patiently tenderly
as only a lover of long tenure can love.


the poem says it all .......
