In this poem Bass portrays the love of an elderly couple. How they embraced in romantic passion. They kissed without caring who was around or what was being said. It was magical. It was true love.
This poem really shows that love surpasses age. That no matter how old your body grows physically, your heart will still love. It reminded me of my grandparents; almost 70 now. The way they look at each other, its amazing. I want to be like the couple at Gate C22, like my grandparents. Old but yet still very much in love.
