When did we go from

Young and in love to

Old and in love still?

Of course, we never

Really were young in love–

Our love sprang in midlife

And grew with companionship

And care, caring as we did

One about the other, but

Honestly, when you are in

Love, you are always young–

Now our hair is no longer grey

It has turned white, age

Has struck us and thrust us

Into a place we never

Expected, one where care

And caring matter more than

Ever they did when we were

Young and in love, although love

Has been our constant, and still

Love shall remain steadfast,

 

Love will be our Polar star.
