Young Love versus Old Love- which is better?

Young Love versus Old Love- which is better?

Young lovers seek to culminate love,
stolen kisses, in buses, alleys,
hugs and embraces on beaches,
and in bed, on the sheets,
between the sheets,
and every imaginable place,
eventually leading to the altar,
and to a home housing both hearts.
Old love is better, Old lovers have seen it all,
from the night when stars conspired,
lightyears ago to converge and twinkle,
in the night sky as I lay my head in your lap,
and we both looked at the stars, that others will see,
ours and our own, with the love that brings them here.
Love conspired to bind our hearts together,
we fought the world with love, to keep it that way.
