Poem: Ageless Love

The other day, you knew just what I was thinking
As I mused over my visage in front of the mirror
You embraced me from behind
And pressed ageless kisses to my head
I savored the mild sting, as stubs of your beard
Pricked the back of my neck
That still gave me goose pimples like I was a little girl!
Playfully, you bumped me with your huge tummy:
We are one reflection of each other, me and you.” You said,
Pointing me to the mirror as we laughed to out heart’s content.
I remember another day as you wiped my tears,
Fingering the wrinkles on my face and said:
I like the way these lines give you a permanent smile“.
Over the years, my heart has saved these echoes
Of the rich tone of your comforting voice.
For in those moments our love was born again
As we laughed or both cried, we became young again.

You’ve been my constant warmth
Even when life felt like a cold empty shell
Now we can be thankful to God for all we have to celebrate.
We’ve hosted all the shiny stars of the galaxy
in our bed chamber for many nights,
But after all this years you have not grown tired
Of feasting on my bosom, well neither am I!
It is almost a contest of who really is the baby now
Not even the grayness that marks our head like a halo will make us shy.

And I’m brought back to the crossroad where it all started
Where we saw ahead a long winding path
Whose hurdles we could give no thought
We bowed our knees and prayed
That out love would be blessed and hallowed…
And now decades down the line, I see,
That as a real man would -
You meant every word when you said
I’d always be your baby no matter what!
Well, between being the sweet mama and an aging beauty
I’d be here, helping you keep your promise
I’d always be your baby as you are mine
No matter what!
