To you, sweet one

359_39758084902_2671_n

When you are old and gray and full of sleep,

and nodding by the fire, take down this book,

And slowly read, and dream of the soft look

Your eyes had once and of their shadows deep;

How many loved your moments of glad grace,

And loved your beauty with love false or true,

But one man loved the pilgrim soul in you,

And loved the sorrows of your changing face;

And bending down beside the glowing bars,

Murmur, a little sadly, how Love fled

And paced upon the mountains overhead

And hid his face amid a crowd of stars.

       –WBY-

Ours may be an ill-timed love, but babe, what a love it is. Let’s time it better our next time around. And let’s stay together till you have to take flight.

Amor vincit omnia.
