Embers of love



Hard to capture
The true feelings of love.
They mirror-like reflect
The limelight of our love.
With each turn of time's great wheel,
Youth recedes.
Leaving embers of passion
Giving warmth to an old man
Alone on a wintry night.
Soul and body unite in true love,
A perfect union with one another.
To late a young man found,
What all men seek,
Beauty expressed in woman.
Soft eyes, a sweet smile,
With the desire to fulfill.
Love fans the ember,
Into life's blaze again!
