OLD MAN’S QUESTION
At what point does the hearing of the young
Laughing an attractive laugh
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.
