Get Rid Of The Advertisements

Just Passing Through
 
We pass through love, go stage by stage
but do we learn love's way at all?
In youth, love's jealous, prone to rage
that reconciles, mercurial.
The thirties bargain and engage
'til vying turns to ritual.
We pass through love, go stage by stage
but do we learn love's way at all?
Middle-age stays half-assuaged
resigned behind a bland-faced wall -
half-quizzical and half-appalled.
Until old, tired, we yield to age,
we pass through love, go stage by stage.
But do we learn love's way at all?
