AGELESSNESS

The body ages - not the heart
it stays forever young . . .
expanding to embrace new loves
its song is never sung.

Tomorrow I may love still more
than in my yesterdays . . .
Life knocks upon the waiting door
outside new music plays.

Love springs unbidden to the heart
a stranger now a friend . . .
and on a day till then grey dull
loom futures without end.

The mind can furnish countless ways
the body plays its part . . .
but life has no conspiracy
to age a loving heart!

  57. Hi Margie,

    I just love reading your poems. You really are so talented!

    I didn't want to get specific on my blog, but if you're curious about my most recent post - those songs reminded me of an old love. It's difficult to put into words, but I just need to express it somehow :)

    Take care,
    ♥ Robyn
