I found this poem to be about love.
Love is our weakest emotion and yet our strongest. We hide behind love.
We also look for love to protect us. When we're in love it shines through

Recently an older friend of mine likened his 75 year- old-state with that
of the dying Aspen trees in his yard. It was sad; he is sad. Like the tune
of an old song one never forgets, this poem came to my mind. The last of
line one is the most powerful, and hoping he will read with purpose, I sent
it to him. Age can embody power, and if Whitman felt it, anyone can.
