Youth is Shining, Age is Aglow

We were young, we had merged as one,
We are old, we are still not done.
Hearts still youthful, faithful, loving
Always active, always roving
Thus we're striving, thus we're giving
Ever thoughtful, ever living
This is just the start of our time
This is not the last of the wine.

Lives still fresh and learning new things,
Lives still green, we spread our old wings,
Flying over, soaring so high
As we let the bad times pass by,
Never giving pain and bad health
Any purchase on our true wealth.
For we always knew that someday
There would be a shining new way.

S'true, youth is wasted on the young
And lust for life may go unsung,
By those who still rejoice in gelt,
Forget, bypass true beauty, unfelt.
Perhaps it must take age to see
The best that we could hope to be.
We two could ne'er regret the missed,
And ne'er let lips remain un-kissed

*****************************

That was when the light was glowing,
That was when she still was knowing.
Now the darkness flows right by us,
Covers over, tends to try us.
Mine is not to let her lose out
As we fight this final life bout.
Light will e'er shine on our battle,
Darkness cannot test our mettle.

Over head a bird still hovers
Proving how this world loves lovers
Nature owns the whole of this world
And we leave the hatred unfurled.
As we fight and rally our force
Ne'er a doubt that light is the source.
Ne'er a doubt that darkness must lose
Always sure that life we must choose.

Now we share our gentle caress,
But the ardor comes less and less.
One must ne'er think I regretted
Ne'er did she feel less indebted.
Love is beauty, love is shining,
Love is glowing, love enshrining.
We were young, we had merged as one.
We were old, we were still not done.
