What an old Lover Knows..........

Starlit memories flash across the ebony skies.
just after the day ....begins an old quest
Wondering if the young have it all......
as the lonely ones lie dreaming
What is it that an
old lover knows
perhaps that there are
just no answers
He watches the young ...
amused by thier wasted energy
That which is lost
never to know again
All those emotions spent in youth
drawn and quartered by such trials
He just can't keep up the pace
nor will he save the dieing race
From themselves
or each other.....
He lives out.....
What an old lover knows
No more
no less....

The old lover has been there, he did those same things that the young one do now, no more, lo less. Beautifully insightful....as always.

How wonderful. I like hearing about the old in a culture so misguidedly focused on youth. Kudos.

The most meaningful lessons finally reach their target at the wrong end of life. I remember those "drawn and quartered" trials oh so well. Ouch!! Beautifully put, as only you can, ahorseback.
