When you Follow Your Heart

When You Follow Your Heart

We might have made love
In the bed of roses: the bed of fragrant flowers 
As we consummate the joy of true love: at age sixty
where the pursuit of pleasure: is a taboo subject
where the Irish moss warms our soft lips:

We might have reversed the aging process, because 
our bodies become fascinating and seductive: coherently
We might have rattled the monkey cage: like epic lovers growing old 
With one thing on our minds: we follow our hearts
