COMPENSATION

We were sweethearts, you and I
in a time that seems long past.
You were young and handsome
when I found love at last.

Each time I saw you coming
my heart was all aglow!
I felt I couldn't love you more-
How little did I know.

Time has passed and now
my life with you is so beautiful today.
But, now, when I see you coming
my heart glows in a different way!

Young love's a stream dancing meerily
A ripple of constant delight!
While older love is a deep steady river
that flows with strength and might!

With the passing of youth
many hearts feel love is done
but older love brings a new beauty
a beauty like the brightest and most blazing sun!

  2. Ah, yes. This is lovely Margie. As I tell my much, much younger friends (in their late 20s and early 30s), as is the case with a fine wine, there is beauty in decay . . .

  14. if it happens, then growing old together has to be the best thing ever ... whenever I used to see my husband out, catch a glimpse, or our cars passed, my heart still skpped a beat and I still got that knot in my stomach... I loved him so much.

    please G-d you will have many more wonderful years together.

    lotsa luv ann xxxx
