Love Is For The Young

As I breath this thought from my lung
Love is not for the old it's for the young
No longer for another love will I ever seek
As now I am one of the aged and the bleak
Passion and desire has been long forgot
Now I don’t care what I have or have not
Though I will fondly remember the days of my past
When I knew of love and it was in my grasp
But I did not nourished it so I let it die
Oh love, dear love, to it all I said goodbye
My days of romance they now are gone
It is a fact that I awaken to in the dawn
Youth and love was the music once played
It was a promise unkept and a bed unmade
The last song to me that will ever be sung
“I once knew of love when I was young.”

    Sir, I beg to entirely disagree
    That love should have an age to really be
    Love in youth is born of lust by pedigree
    And in old age it bursts forth as care and empathy....

    True, but love keeps our hearts young ever when you are truly in love! I am 53 years old but I still feel young at heart, still crazy about my wife who is 49! (Report) Reply

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust

And pays us but with earth and dust;
