Aging Well

I see you across the room

And it stops my heart

You’re just as handsome as ever

In fact that touch of grey

Adds to your allure

I feel a pull tugging me

Across the room to you

Butterflies in my stomach

And a voracious appetite for you

Leaves me weak in my knees

I take a deep breath

And recognize your cologne

I can’t stay where I am

I must touch you once more

Even if it is just a brief moment

This hunger must be quenched
