Does Love Grow Old With Age......

at one time he spoke gently
at every time of day
he never demanded anything
in any kind of way
his actions and words
spoke of his love
of an unselfish, unhindered
love from above

he would show his love
in so many ways
not only at night
but throughout the days

an outsider would so
obiously see
she was loved
and to his heart she alone held the key


its years on now
and what has so majorly changed
his answers are one worded
the relationship’s strained

he doesnt take time
to cherish his bride
life, work, responsibilities
are now his pride

she smiles in public,
even holds his hand
but in secret places,
her heart has gone bland

that spicy love
that was once aflame
has slowly dwindled,
taken its claim

why does this happen
so commonly today
with age love fades,
nearly slips away

may forget their kiss
that was a first
the sparks that flew,
about to burst

the first squeeze of the hand
the first embrace
the first time
he caressed her soft face

their feelings then were strong,
so real
what happens that with age
they dont at all feel

not at 80 she sits alone,
waiting for him to come home
hope & praying he’ll bring a hug,
a little squeeze, even some love

the door opens
in he comes
heads to the kitchen
the dinner’s on

he doesnt see his bride
standing there
apron on
her flour stained hair……..
