You Make Me Feel Young Again - Poem by Toni Atchison

(for Gust)

You make me feel young again-
like my heart is whole and strong,
and the world is a toy to delight me.
And laughter flows like water,
with sunlight as a generous gift.
You make me feel young again-
like making love was invented by us
as we walk perfected in a garden,
an Eden of modern life,
with rain to cloak us sweetly.
You make me feel young again-
like all my aches have fled,
and the universe lies at my fingertips
with the earth as a gumdropp of sweetness.
Your love will forever sustain me-
and you make me feel young again.

    Thank you Toni for this uplifting poem of love. This is a very fine tribute to Gust (is that short for Gustav?) . Anyway it is 8: 22 am in Melbourne, Australia, and your poem made me smile, and 'see' the morning.

    Love & hugs,
