3. Age Doesn't Matter.

I wanted to hold you-

You were just too far out of my reach.

This this got me thinking.

Does age really matter?

 

You wanted something different-

I wanted you.

You wanted a different life,

I wanted a fantasy life.

 

I wanted to hold you-

You were just too far out of my reach.

Does age really matter?

 

You went away-

I stayed where I was.

You were there believing,

I was struggling.

 

Now I look back-

Wondering if not reaching out for you was bad,

Wondering if I made a wrong decision.

You went away-

I stayed where I was.

 

Was I right?

Was I wrong?

You are happy,

And I’m stuck here.

 

I don’t know what to do-

Should I run?

Should I hide?

People say this is wrong,

People say this is right.

 

You’ve come back for me-

Arms wide open,

Calling to me.

 

I can’t decide-

Is it right?

Is it wrong?

Can I go with you?

Can I have the happiness that you dreamt about?

Does age really matter?

 

I’ve made my decision-

Stood with you,

Your arm around me.

Your smile,

Your happiness,

All of it because of me.

 

People ask me-

Does age really matter?

I try to tell them,

But I can’t.

It’s too hard to explain,

How do I say it?

 

I look at them-

I look at you,

I look at the baby in the swing.

I shake my head,

Does age really matter?

Of course not,

Age doesn’t matter.
