Everyday that I age
my body warns me
that I’m not as young as I once was,
and I die a little more.
At the same time
that I am getting older
I get to know myself
and I try to live better than before.
Many things that I did wrong
have truly weakened me,
yet by it I became a lot stronger
and even in defeat I have grown.
The time spent with you
I loved you without regrets,
however; without you
I love you more as you have known.
When we kissed and made love
I treasured it finer that gold,
knowing that the magical pleasure
was far more worthy than my life.
It matters not at this time
since those years have set us apart,
and my arms don’t hold you
because today you became someone’s wife.
