Cherish

CherishAge changes love
 I know that infinite possibilities
No longer await – if they ever really did

For my time with you is finite
And ever shortening

The fire and passion that defined my love
Is now more lukewarm and comforting
It has morphed into soft down
That enfolds, always touching

I now understand
 Love is shortlived
For life is shortlived

And much more precious because of it
