(Pachamama - traveler / You are Perfect!)

I'll Watch You Wrinkle, And Smile

I watched as you turned 40
now mature and lightly thicker

From the rear of your car
you yanked the bumper stickers

You've come of age, all grown
and sliding a bit downhill

Your body starts to change,
but to me it still does thrill

i love your little wrinkles
and a little more to grab

your words are nicely seasoned,
and your food is not half bad

45 was even better,
we're picking up the pace!

Each line is a trophy
on your blissed-out face

Your wisdom rules your life,
and your mind seems stiller

I will always worship you,
of my heart, you are the killer

Love is beauty that resides in heart, not on skin. A love lorn heart sees only beauty in her lover. Very tender and lovely poem, thanks for sharing.The lines that I liked most in the poem- - 45 was even better we're picking up the pace! Each line is a trophy on your blissed-out face
Alice, may you and your loved one continue to age gracefully. In a culture that continues to praise youthfulness, it's refreshing to see a reversal in this well thought out poem. Congratulations on Poem Of The Day!
Love not only grows on young but also it grows on old age. Very nicely and tenderly painted it in this poem. It is a beautiful poem really. Thanks and congratulation.
