OLD MAN’S QUESTION

OLD MAN’S QUESTION

At what point does the hearing of the young

Laughing an attractive laugh

Not overcome?

When will a young woman not catch

An older man wanting to rehatch

His youth and that one catch?

When will these feelings go away,

The need to be loved

And the fear of betrayed?

Some parts of him will never subside

For they’re part of his being,

Some things that abide…

A part of him remains young.

–Jonathan Caswell
