Ivor Hogg

For all his faults

Although hes old and grey and bent.
He cannot do what he used to.
He is my man I am content
But he forgets and still tries to.
He acts as if hes thirty two.
He wont admit to being old
convinced he has no reason to
Hes stubborn and he wont be told
That he has nothing left to prove.
Hes still the only man for me
I have no doubts about his love
Because he proves it constantly.
I know hes old and bent and gray.
Hes still the man I love today.
