Ageless Love



We watched the iron tubes

floating slowly up the Thames 

giant parts on a freight barge

I remember him saying

look, that’s the Eye

it was on its way

to its resting place on the south bank 

we had no idea then

Just what we were witnessing?

we were too busy kissing and frolicking 

of course, as young lovers do

sunday’s were magical back then


and now?


more than twenty years have passed 

when I see the enormous London Eye

from the plane descending into my darling Heathrow

flying close to all the famous landmarks 

and the captain announces

 “ Ladies and Gentlemen on your right you can see the eye”

especially when it’s daylight and the sky is clear blue

it reminds me of my youth

and my innocence and those first kisses 

that will always be within my heart 

hidden in a secret box of ageless love.
