Who Will Change Old Lamps for New

 

Who will change old lamps for new?

Not I. Mine lights my days

    as well as nights.

Who cares if the glass is chipped

    with use

And the metal tarnished with age.

I am comfortable with it.

 

Who will change an old love for new?

Not I. Mine fills my days

    as well as nights.

Who cares if his youth has flown

And his strength and beauty ebbed.

He brightens and warms my spirit.

I am comfortable with him.
