Lips and Years

Linda, Linda, Linda,
We’ve had a lot of years;
Many, many happy;
In spite of many fears.

But somehow we keep doing;
Just keep moving on.
You’re truly my life partner,
There could be no other one.

I know my mind is busy
And often leaves you out.
But as to where my heart is,
There can be no doubt.

You’ve had it for a long time,
It knows no other place.
Which is why my lips do not touch lips
On any other face.

Woodbridge, VA February 1998
