Kiss me and love me. Leave when you must.

It’s those extra years
that won’t allow
our relationship to survive
(we can’t understand how this
can happen now but it will)

I’m years older than you
My face and body
appear youthful

I treat you with love
and respect
and loving words
(you are not use to that
with younger men)

If we stay with each other
I will remain loving
and loyal
but with passing years
your heart may wander to
a younger man
and his words will be designed
to win you from me

I will love you forever
but when my heart breaks
it will not heal

I know you love me now
but years will pass
(even as slow as they do)
I will still want and love you
but you will love another man

I don’t know
when this will happen —
when you will want to go places
I can’t go
or when you will want to do things
I no longer can

I love you now
I always

Accept my love today
and for many tomorrows —
love me back
and give me
1000 kisses
and more

When time and age
turns against me
leave quietly
while I’m asleep

I will continue to love you
in my memories
each night

As a teen, wanted to live from writing poetry. Wrote several books, selling nationally. Hung out with readers throughout the United States. My writing has been on back burner. Now dusting off my desk and have my pen in hand. Hope you enjoy some of what I write.
