Two Goofy Old People Holding Hands at the Zoo

Look into my eyes
And you will see
Beyond who I am now

Your friend at first
Your lover later
Your wife and mother of our boy

When I was young
And slim
And unwrinkled

Before Life shaped us both
Like an overzealous potter
With clay

Pounding and pushing
Forcing out the bubbles
Making us stronger

Look into my eyes
And you will see
Beyond who I am now

Our age
Our condition
Superfluous

Our bodies are only
The shells that hold
Our eyes

Our eyes connect
Our souls
And have always seen

Beyond
Who we are
Now

Happy 13th Anniversary, Gomez
I love you
