What would be the beauty

If the wisdom of a

45 year-old love was known

at 25

?

Much more meaningful

would be the passion that

accompanies the age.

What wholly completedness

at 25

?

Where could then meet?

This love. Not wisdom,? merely

Not passion, only

at 25

?

It can Solomonian be?

Complete and utter? beauty

in heart and body, spirit

at only quarter 100

only 25

?

I am turning another year soon

yet time is running slow

I wish I could have met you

and untill the day I do

at 25 or more

I'll imagine just the beauty

at 25 or more

45 y
