"a framed butterfly"

We are young now, we will be old then.
We are in love now, we will be in love then.
Why can't we capture these moments like time in a sand bottle?
Why can't we capture these moments like time in a framed butterfly?

I am young now, I will be old then.
You are young now, you will be old then.
Why can’t we capture these moments like a baby’s first teeth smile?
Why can’t we capture these moments like an adult‘s first gray hair look?
Why can’t we capture these moments like a picture of ‘I do” ?
Why can’t we capture these moments like a picture of “honeymoon"?

I am young now, I will be old then.
You are young now, you will be old then.
Our memory won't hold our love then,
Amnesia will be taking over love then.

"Lets love now to make love then"

I am young and i would be old then
I would be busy with my kids, their problems , my fitness , my dogs, my cats , my birds, my farmhouse , my old man, my horse and lot of other things ....Gosh !! i am gonna have a busy old age ;) .... Amnesia is not gonna bother me in any way :)

Life is about living each phase of life and enjoying it to the fullest ...Nice post!!
