My Mind, Forever Young

In thin scripted lines of written poetry
there is a yearning for times long past;
when hearts of men were there to see,
when love was but the question asked.

Not the caressing of persons shared
but more of when the minds are paired,
when tongues drip words of sweet desire
sharing a loverís speech in honeyed mire.

To have one gaze longingly into my soul
and find it timeless in its whole,
looking past aged wrinkles and fine lines
one treasures, forever young, my mind.

With the mind, love might forever cease
when thoughts turn ugly, loveís decreased;
but when fertile thoughts of love unwinds
one treasures, forever young, my mind.

Memories never fade, but softly linger,
held in oneís stroke, sweet grasp of finger
never wintry or arthritic in its touch
forever young, my mind holds much.

Amazing, what thoughts can render
when shared with others forever young,
cryptic messages to loveís sender,
memories of lovesí sweetness thus be sung.

Nay, Iíll not stop this aging process
of widening hips and flattening chest
nay, Iíll hold poems close to my breast
forever young, my mind is best.

Definately the song of my soul. We are
only as old as we feel. Right?

Very nice, Sunshine - I figure...
I can do something about the hips,
and the chest will never flatten,
the hair isn't graying,
so just keep on playing

Julie, we will perform a duet;
Nan, only some things will I change;
Pepper, love it when someone quotes my words back to me;
and Sy, perhaps we've not seen 'nuttin', yet!

Thank you, Hoot. I enjoyed writing this one...actually, I enjoy writing them all, but some seem more special than others.

No one is ever hopeless, but let's hope we all stay young at heart, and in mind!
