Love for Senior Citizens


I'll be pushing up the daisies
Before you realise
I loved you so much, so much more
Than all the other guys.

I guess I'm getting rather old
But I'm still in love with you,
I may be last year's model
But my passion is brand new!

Why don't you give yourself a break
And give me half a chance,
I've had enough of heart-ache
And I'm looking for romance.

The sun shines in November
Although the summer's done,
I want you to remember
There's still some time for fun.

We could be very happy,
Believe me, this is true,
Let's take a chance and try it,
You for me and me for you.

poet Edmund Spenser

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
