The Secret

That which muddled youth can’t comprehend
So must in ignorance then condescend
To call “adorable” or “sweet” or “cute”
(When all the time their opinion’s really moot)–
A long-lived love that decades help to grow
In long-time lovers like us they can’t know ;
It’s fundamentally the hottest kind,
Grown out of deep devotion of the mind.
Yet bodies, too, though aging makes a change,
Learn over many years a broader range
Of quickened heartbeats, skills and deft warm touch
We never dreamed would grow so far, so much!
They’ll understand the secret when they’re older:
The heart grows ever stronger, sex much bolder.
