She Hasn't Left Me Yet

I remember when youth felt forever, for I didn't understand grown-up things. And I spent all of my time playing games, dreaming of magical dragons with wings. Yet in the blink of an eye my life changed, with a glancing gentle touch of her hand. For I felt feelings never felt before, it was serendipitous, nothing planned. It was like a veil suddenly lifted, what was once invisible, became clear. And I noticed the beauty of her eyes, followed by her shy smile that drew me near. I felt compelled to try and steal a kiss, for passion's burning flame had ignited. Yet my heart was beating frantically, fearing my move may not be invited. I decide to throw caution to the wind, take a gamble and pursue my sweet prize. For despite the hopes of a clumsy teen, love chooses the moment innocence dies. She warmly welcomed my impromptu kiss, moaning passionately as our lips met. And I instantly knew we'd wed, it’s been forty years and she hasn't left me yet.
