Love Never Dies



You heard it right, old people make love Doesn't end at a predetermined age We love until that Man upstairs calls us With your parents it's still the rage When I was a very much younger lad Thought it died when people became parents Bickering about this thing and that each day No time for those intimate moments What I failed to see behind closed doors The spark that remains through the years No matter the age, love still reigns supreme So you young people, have no fears Trust me, have I ever lied to you before Well maybe a little white lie now and then But about love and the older generation Well no way, wouldn't even pretend So breathe easier my very young people I'm a prime example of endurance Been making love almost sixty-five years Still do when I get the chance! © Jack Ellison 2013

    Don't forget you write poetry, too... Dragon says he especially LOVES the ones about him. He's too young to understand your love... But understands the brotherly and platonic type... Says he's thinking about naming his dogasaurus Plato... after platonic... Think I'll need to give him the next lesson on Plato the great Greek thinker... Besides I think a better name for the both of them is Dumb and Dumber... Don't tell them I said that... but you should see them discussing yard peeing etiquette.
