Good to be Naked

it's not as much about her suntanned body as it is the sunshine that shoots from her eyes

He sat me down and said
it’s not as much about what she looks like on the outside,
my grandfather told me,
although that is nice,
it’s not as much about her suntanned body
as it is
the sunshine that shoots from her eyes
even when she’s sixty-six,

he said,
sure sex is great
and a good body is exciting at first,
but eventually,
it’s just good to be naked,
it’s nice to be naked with the same old person,
my grandpa said,

and some people
think their parents are still chaste
and never do it,
but I’m glad my grandparents
are still magnets growing old,
as I hope to be old with someone
too.

    This was a short but wonderful synopsis that captures that true love of growing old. Being naked with the same old person. Excellent introspection my friend.
