AGELESS LOVE (March Contest)

She wakes beside me every day
and stumbles from our bed
her hair all mussed, eyes full of sleep
she's lovely as the day we wed

Though many years have passed us now
my hair has grown both scarce and white
when I see her I still behold
the girl I met one summer night

And I still like to look at her
she makes me laugh and smile
when I tire and my bones ache
for her I'll go on for a while

When oft' I gaze into bright eyes
I still become quite lost
and wonder why she's stayed so long
no matter what the cost

And as the years pile up on me
with her I'll live my life
and always see the girl within
my never aging wife
