Old Lovers Renew
Loves spine shivering fingers stroke down
and anticipation spirals,
as tender touch releases frown.
Words first seeming final,
now just a memory drifting away,
as they continue to love for one more day.
Loves tender touch, warms hidden gem
and icy hearts melt.
Intensity charges through them,
forgotten words no longer felt,
as his searing diamond, cuts into ruby deep
and then spent lovers lie and drift to sleep.
Loves new dawn dew, glistening bright
and old feelings renew,
as lovers climb to new heights,
true feelings revealed between two,
and beauty of emotions, once thought gone,
those two old lovers merge again into one.
