look in the mirror
and my hair hangs curled under
I look distinguished
That is a nice way of saying older
I like the look
but I am not yet ready to see it
It is at these moments when
I wonder what my young lover sees
Does his head cock to the side
Doubts seeps in
I mention the age gap to a friend
She dismisses it with
I am relieved but push on
I suggest maybe I should
give my young lover up
let him mature for a few years, let
him ‘sow some wild oats’
“Isn’t that what he is doing with you?”
A good truth told

Postscript; Thank you to all of my family, personal friends and blogger friends whom have read, supported and contributed to my blog. Thank you to Dave whom encouraged me to get started.

With many emotions, my smile simply says 'thank you' in every language.
