Age and Beauty

I wrote this to my wife Brittany 7 years ago when we first met..

Age and Beauty

Her beauty was that of a princess in a fairy tale with a body
that was as perfect as a bottle of hundred-year-old red wine.
He was a poet that wrote of beautiful women just like her
in all his epic love poems all the time. She was the timeless
beauty who had the essence of Marilyn Monroe he wanted
to create a new poem written all over her body on a blanket
under the light of a full moon and all the stars up in the skies
on some hot midsummer night, two hearts who were lost
that want to beat as one just trying to find their way in this
lonely life, but alas time was not on his side. She had all the
time in the world as she was just starting her life, and he
was halfway through his they were friends though he
secretly he wanted much more, for he was the age when
he wrote of love from the beginning of time. She was all
the beauty of this world that he dreamed of and all the
masterpieces he would write whenever she was around
yet she never even had to make a sound. The poetry that
he wrote in his head was simply amazing and the ones
that he wrote for the world to see were absolutely lovely
as could be. She was just as wild as a northern wind in
a perfect storm with a wild soul that wanted so much
more out of life than she has seen so far. He lived a
thousand lives with her in his dreams that would play in
his mind whenever he would close his eyes, she knew
too and was so amazed by his words that he wrote to her.
Maybe one day she will know that she was his Juliette
his Monroe was his secret love that she would never
know. Her beauty never faded for him just like all of his
feelings that saturated his mind with the thoughts of her
every day and night his heart was always hers from the
start his soul that would forever feel young because
one day on a hot midsummer night age and beauty
finally came together to write a masterpiece of love
that only they would ever know the words to that
would forever be etched in all the fabric of time as
they wrote a classic piece of poetic art together
that will last always and beyond forever as age and
beauty came together as friends and lover's husband
and wife in every love poem that was and will be ever
written of all time.
