A Vintage Romance

A Vintage Romance

he takes her hand when they walk
always walks on the right side
in case a car strays off the street

he calls her darling and dear
and other passionate endearments
he makes her feel like a queen

he opens all the doors for her
pulls out her seat at meals
always tells her she is beautiful

compliments her every morning
on her eyes and her smile
kisses her like he means it

if she makes a mistake he says
please don’t apologize ever
I love you whatever you do

he claims his voice is dreadful
but sometimes in the night
he sings love songs to her

lined face still handsome
he calls himself a dinosaur
she calls him the love of her life
