Older person getting older: Thoughts
As you slept
I touched your hand as you slept last night.
I felt your breath on my chest.
I whispered my expressions to your ear,
A vow of simplicity;
I promised to honor you each day of my life.
I swore my sincerity and nobility.
I assured all the offerings a gentleman could bestow;
An uncomplicated contribution of love.
I caressed your arm when you woke.
I kissed your silky lips.
I seized your spirit to mine.
A constant devotion for the experience of you.
I made love with you.
I held you securely in my arms.
I implored the moment to carry on forever.
I awoke from the dream.
I wept for her that does not exist.
