Autumn Love

Our Autumn Love

How many ages past as I recall
An image of my brawny self to quell
The ominous fear of growing old soon
What, Pray, intervenes to recast that spell
Voluminous love of feeling and touch
Render to me your body with lust
Crushing embraces and wet kisses on
your soft and flaccid skin, your oily shine
Give impetus to move my palsied hands
Across your bare exterior to soothe 
and utter sweet expletives in your ear
Our eighty plus years have not bound our souls
Just a brief sojourn to the climax of love
©Ralph Sergi April 21,2016
*This poem is not necessarely meant to be sensual
but as a message to seniors that love whether
 physical or spiritual should be the  last thing you enjoy
 until your dying day.

    I reckon that when one gets old The spiritual love takes over, and this is surely true love. I'm glad my love for my lady has lasted for fifty four years, and gets deeper each new day' it was a pleasure to read your poem this morning, my friend A7 from me, my friend....peter

    Hello Ralph, A very well-rendered Ballad here. Love is that common emotion and all-important thread that runs through all of our respective lives. (Despite many of the formats I've tried, I have yet to write a Ballad. Looks like I might try one of these in the future.) Enjoyed it immensely here Ralph!! Cheers and Best, Gary

    Hi Ralph, in my eyes when the sex has dried up, the love becomes even better. I don't miss sex at all. Nice write, mate...peter

    Amen to that and as much sensuality as we can along the way!

    Agree, love should last until we die but we have to work to get there. Great poem.

    This poem is made all the more thoughtful with your end comment! Love should never have an "ending!"....just a new beginning every new day!
