OLDER TOGETHER


OLDER TOGETHER

by Jonathan Caswell

 

It is not good to be alone

When living a long time…

As youthful lusts and living “large”

Recede without much rhyme.

To share a life unglamorous

Away from spotlight glow,

Depends less on the roar of crowds…

Than the one you closely know.

It’s not the limelight party life,

But bathrooming and spit

Shared with a husband or a wife…

That softens tongue with grit.

One never can learn truer love

Nor in full grace abide,

Until one labors on with love…

Viewing the underside.

Not many struggle for a lark

Or covenant a one night stand,

The selfish ones will always run…

And abandon Love’s command!
