Good Morning Sonnet for Aging Lovers

My young, lithe years are all behind me now
(If they were ever as I now recall!),
I stumble downstairs on these aching feet,
Grasp handrails to get down without a fall,
With hair and eyes akimbo, find you there
As if no years had passed for us at all,
As, looking up from what you do, you say,
“Good morning, Beautiful!” and your arms call.
So we begin our day with warmth and smiles
As, first removing glasses, we embrace,
Your touch smooths out my hair and loosens joints,
And magically you unscramble my face!
Our kitchen matins thus take us from night
Each day into the singing morning light.

      Thank you, Sweetie. We both went through hell before we found each other. That’s a pretty effective way to learn not to take each other for granted. It’s also the origin of my motto at the top of the page.

  5. Simply beautiful 🙂
