My Eyes Won’t Droop

Every time you go away

I get older,

please won’t you stay? 
Time marches on, day
after day, 
each time you go away.
Please, 
Won’t you stay? 
My wrinkles get deeper,
my eyes, not as bright,
Each time 
you hit the highway. Please,
Won’t you stay?
Ankles get swelled,
Eyes droop,
And, I won’t mention
What else.
If you stay,
I won’t notice
The march of time,
That’s all.
I won’t get old,
If you don’t 
Go.
