A Lifetime of Love

We have been together forever, it seems
Yet the passion still burns between us
Where once our touches were awkward, now they are sure
And while age has given us wisdom and patience
It has not lessened our desire
Our bodies may not be as firm and supple as they once
But what we have lost there, we have gained in knowledge
The knowledge of just where to touch, just how to touch
And we have grown in generosity
Wanting, no needing, to pleasure each other, not just
Each touch filled with love, and fueled by memories of a
lifetime together
Rich and full, and satisfying down deep in our souls
Joining not just in body, but in spirit
And soaring to a place young lovers can never know
