Married people can become weary due to stress. They even put their marriage on auto pilot. When their nest is empty they often find they've lost
touch with each other.

A Tired Heart

A tired heart beats on with love
that flows from young beginnings
When all was butterflys in May
and life's lottery was all winnings

Like the waves that reach the shore
that began way out at sea
A tired heart sustains its beat
from first love's energy

Years of fighting enemies
of love that's right and true
Can make the strongest heart grow weak
And most often do

But stronger still is the love
that through tests and time grew
And when the heart feels death is near
Love reveals itself anew

Ahem. BOOKmarked.

Lovely. Boomark and applaud.

Description plus in title, so much depth in two words.

Introduction of explanation beats expressively giving me feeling of identification, understanding, easy to relate to as we all share emotion of how our hearts lead us. I like the way you reflected to first love's energy, that can be such a buzz of a yard stick.

I personally feel you may be saying something else in relation to health of a heart? I hope this comment finds you in good health?

Death is near can a few meanings like, drawing to a close of love for another. I appreciate this poem and the special feeling of warmth and emotion embraced in your selection of words.
