XYZ Of Love

Write me a Poem
About the Xyz Of Love¡

Let it not be a Poem
About the abc of dating or courtship,
Of Love On first encounter
Of Loss of appetite and body weight
Whenever she was beyond a stone's throw;
Or loss of Sleep and Peace Of Mind
Whenever she was beyond earshot

Neither Let it be
About the Lmn of the middle years of settled Marriage
When the children have come
and you are struggling Day and Night to bring them Up in the world

With the holes in your Pocket
and the rain leaking through the roof
While you Agonise in your Half sleep
How to find food,fuel and fees

No,let it be a Poem
about the xyz of Love
In its climatic years
About two total strangers
Utterly dismiliar in Anatomy and Physionomy
Who have mutually so moulded themselves
Into a thorough Image of each other
and the neighbours ultimately remark
"See how they look like brother and sister"
that when the couple finally dies,the other fondly follows.
