What Makes Me Cry

This thing that makes me cry is

When two people who love each other

Grow old

And still love each other

When they were young they had smooth bodies and big smiles

They danced and had babies and went to work

And were beautiful in youth

Then they got old

And sometimes sick

Had tremors

Fell down

Used walkers

Their skin was not smooth any more

But they still kissed every morning

And every night

And they still said I love you

And held hands

The very thought makes me cry.
