Will Your Love Remain Rigid?

Will you still admire me?
When my physical beauty burns out like raiment
When my face is under the heels of wrinkles
When roughness of my skin is annoying
When the odour from it is odd

Will you still cherish me?
When my sheen appearance fades away like sunset
When beautiful black threads of my head turn gray and start to loose
When my bewitching curves become plane and no longer invoke your interest
When the croaking of frogs is more pleasant than my voice

Will you still love me?
When my gorgeous poises become a story to tell
When my cat-walk becomes staff-walk
When I can't take care of your weedy garden
When I start to complain about the smell of wine we've both once enjoyed

I ask you my lover
When the feelings lurch away from your heart
Won't I become poison you must avoid?

I ask you my lover
When the demise of the feelings knocks
Won't my face anger your eyes?

I ask you my lover
When reasons for having that feelings leave
Will your love remain rigid?
