It was all we knew or wanted to know,
Bouncing on beds,
Singing along, to hardly known songs,
Whatever lyrics jump in our heads.
We loved with our all our guts
Not the skin on top
Our laughter shared was love declared,
And our promise not to stop.
When simplicity of soul and
Spawns love, it’s made of
Stuff beyond adult conventions-
Breathless and helpless,
Ageless and selfless.
