Thirty-eight is more than just a number,
Having joined through love the flow of flesh,
Inheriting the future, choosing life,
Rejoicing in the wisdom of a wife,
The seed of which the person is the creche,
Yielding what the years cannot encumber.

Even as the tree is not the lumber,
Infinity awaits your will, as such,
Graced to be the cradle of a grief
Howling through the tapestries of touch,
The passion wrapped in swaddling clothes of slumber.
