Tri, Try and Try Again

As a young man my stamina was grand and I wanted to be with you every day weekly,
In those first years when our love still brought tears we enjoyed each other tri-weekly.

As time went by and we became friends, you and I, we didn’t give up sex completely,
Even though we liked to share other things of which we care, in bed we still liked to try 

Now we our old and for an average_joe I would like to submit that I've aged neatly,
But of that stuff in our bed I think it can be said the best we can do is try weakly.

    Okay.... You did not follow the required scheme with the inline rhyme and refrain, but I thoroughly enjoyed the write..... I had to place this.... I could not give you a top six rank because this was more a free verse rather than a Ghazal but regardless, Great poem my friend....:JP]
