The Aging of Love

We are born. We breathe. We live. We die. Life has so many ways of aging us. Kids age many parents, usually because of stress. I see so many young people go from luscious brown or blonde hair to graying and white hair. Another thing that ages us is, of course, life. We are often caught up in working, trying to make it easier on the rest of our family and sacrificing our health for those that we love. We go with our loved ones to places when we would rather just stay home and rest. This also causes aging, due to stress of the body. Most everything in life will age us for the worst, making us look and act older, but what is that one perk of life that can make any human act like a hormonally imbalanced teenager again? Take heed, it can also make you feel old, but if you have that right one, then you will feel younger than ever. Love of a companion is what I am speaking of.

This couple may not have the physical features of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, but I would take their happiness over movie star looks any day. A love that can hold for that long is something special.

Everything else we do in life is for the happiness of others. Giving love out ages us, but when we get that love back, it somehow rejuvenates us 100 times faster than giving out love. There are some movies and songs that make a lot of us wonder if real love can be as they portray it. Love can come in all forms. One movie I love is called "Paulie". It is about a talking parrot, who grew up around a little girl that he loved, but he was given away to a test lab. He tells his story to a janitor, throughout the movie. It is a film that will steal your heart. A lighter, more humorous side of love movies is the film "Couple's Retreat". It tells a story about 4 couples that go to a retreat to try to help two of their friends rekindle their love. The movie is hilarious throughout, but has a very good ending. But my all time favorite and one I will never forget is "The Notebook", where Noah, the main character, reads life stories to his wife who has Alzheimer's Disease, just to catch one more glimpse of that love she once had for him.

This is a short song I wrote concerning love and how it can age us for better or worse. The beat goes for every 4 lines.

The Age of Love


I'm way too young to be feeling this old.

My joints start hurting when it gets cold.

It all started when she took her love away.

I was so blind I couldn't see the light of day.

Her love's gone now, but it wasn't my choice.

It seemed like everyday I could hear her voice.

I'm not the same since that love was lost.

My heart has been through a holocaust.

Every time I run a comb through my hair

Some falls out, but I don't care.

And even though I have a heart of gold.

I'm still way too young to be feeling this old.

I was far too hurt to take another chance.

I wasn't letting anyone else cut in for a dance.

I was so caught up, dwelling on the past

Protecting my heart like it was made of glass.

But then a woman came in and took my hurt away.

And now all that I am left to say....

Is that I never thought I could have this much fun.

And now I'm way too old.... to be feeling this young....

What a nice poem...this would be such a nice tribute, for a widower! I think a box of kleenex, and a nice homemade hot meal, should go with this letter, though:) Along with some added company, for the man to comfort his lonely soul. Awesome write:)
