The slim young man I married
Has slowly gone to pot;
With wrinkled face and graying top,
Slender he is not!!!
And when I meet a mirror,
I find a haggard crone;
I can’t believe the face I see
Can really be my own!!! But when we seek our bed each night,
The wrinkles melt away;
Our flesh is firm, our faces warm,
Our ardent hearts are gay!!!
The fountain of Eternal Youth
Is not so far to find;
Two things you need- a double bed,
A spouse who’s true and kind!!!
