" Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened."

*My joints start to buckle as the arthritis sets in
*My body inundated with the pain old ages brings within
*The gray hairs askew on my head symbolize a life that is nearing its end
*And secretly i wish to be reincarnated so i could experience all the fun and love again
*Every wrinkle, a year filled with so much rapture
*All those moments i wish to recapture

*I will attempt to elucidate 65 years of living care free as best as i can
*And i shall tell about Aden which is how it all began
*Though his pulchritude may have been what initially attracted me the most
*It was his serenity and ingenuity that led us to become oh so close
*His jet black hair cascaded down in a halo of messy curls that framed his face
*There was never a time that i felt more at home then in his embrace
*His mania laugh i could never get enough of
*I learned that day that you couldn't choose who you loved

*Every second spent with him was convivial
*It wasn't until everything seemed perfect that our relationship grew trivial
*Thinking back i shouldn't have been so surprised
*Only when I'm happy and things are going well am i chastised
*The guy that i knew had been ruthlessly slain
*Replaced by a stranger that left both emotional and physical pain
*His white hot rage left in me a feeling of dismay
*And shattered all my dreams of my best friend someday catching my bouquet
*His fist left contusions encasing my entire frame
*It felt surreal to think that Aden could do this to me, a man that i couldn't bring myself to disclaim

*Because while i hated him,i loved him at the same time
*I know caring for Aden was my erroneous crime
*But like i said before, you couldn't choose the one you loved
*Even is his way of expressing it is through pushes and shoves

*But the funny thing is,is how people can change
*Even if they were once a little deranged
*Time manages to mellow us all
*And now i share a house with Aden, no matter how small
*We have come to grow old together
*His caress now as light as a feather
*Now as he sits next to me, old and withered away
*I am now more certain then ever that my place in the world is by his side where i will always stay
