The Retro Love

“And this, for the most beautiful lady in the world”
taking the rose out of his pocket, he said.
Her eyes kept staring at him in amusement.
and those eyes o hers, already left him rapt.
“Will you be my valentine?”
Knelling down to his knees, he added.
Feeling his heart beat go apace,
He still had his eyes locked into hers.
“What sort of stupidity is this now?”
With a smile on her wrinkled face, she exclaimed.
“You’ll have cold mind you.”
Helping him get up, she added.
And finally the 70 years old couple,
Had their valentine’s for the first time ever.

She was a traveling soul. The galaxy resting above her nose. I’d sit & stare. Wondering where the stars would go next. Both young & in love I let go. Tracing together swirls of color. The planets all together aligned.

Please take my hand, for I am blind. I’ve lost my path and my sense of touch. I’ve fallen, for my hands and feet are behind. Please let me hear, for all is in a hush. My wrist and ankles
