why the old man smiles…

why the old man smiles

he sees not her age
only still his young new bride
his eyes full of pride

  1. I had an experience that reminds me of your poem: Mr. Sinclair, showed me a photo of his dear wife right after she had a severe stroke, and said, “I can’t believe it.”
    I was about to say, “It’s so tragic.”, when he said, “She’s as beautiful as the day we met.”

  2. Love does see past wrinkles, saggy skin, blemishes, thick waists and flabby arms. My husband is as sexy as he was when we started dating, some 55 years ago. In fact, I find him even sexier because our love has grown so much with each passing year.
