Can it live up to expectations?

Thirty-Seventh Honeymoon

A get-a-way with only you
captures and strikes my fancy
I dream and plot what we will do
though our old bodies are chancy

Big ideas excite my mind
the possibilities are endless
But only if we both can find
a youthful lust within us

Spirits willing but bodies weak
we'll take this trip with hope
and ignor our bones when they creak
as we tussle, explore and grope

Try we will to fan the fire
to keep it burning hot
while each other we admire
overlooking what's gone to pot!
