Our Lovers’ Brew (poem)

In all that life has put me through

There at my side was always you

To put up with that something new

Or offer second point of view

-

We really danced by candle light

When things they were a little tight

Familiar faces hid from sight

Thus thrust us to our own delight

-

I closed my eyes and held you through the night

And listened to your gentle little coo

As we slipped into our lovers’ brew

We knew that everything would turn out right

-

We grew as did our family

Our plans were laid more carefully

So family we might freely spree

Together for the world to see

-

I close my eyes beside you near our tree

And listened to our children’s playful plight

Remembering each treasured drop of dew

As we slipped into our lovers’ brew

To greet each morning in world so bright

My love and partner lying next to me

-

Then came that time kids went their way

So we thought at greatness play

We placed our talents on a tray

And jumped into the thirsty fray

-

I close my eyes a dream each precious day

And listen to you laugh so happily

Remembering the visions you excite

In hearts of lesser lovers who would stew

As we slipped into our lovers’ brew

Each kiss we shared will make the moon ignite

There never were two lovers such as we

Reality itself now lights our sway

-

To our dismay our grand display

Too like Capri for jealousy

So out of sight with utter spite

It changed the hue of lovers’ brew

-

The nights of sway

For lovers we

To kiss good night

The treasured dew

-

Maybe might view

New brew

I love it when couples' love grows as they age. Too often it's the other way around. It fades or they take it for granted.

This is a very beautiful point of view, Martin.
