He wonders often what it is
That makes her want to stay;
What does she see that others can't
-For others turned away.

No, it can't be wealth or status
-He's but a simple man
And the dreams of youth have vanished
-Yes, ev'ry single plan.

He never thought that looks were his
-She tends to disagree
And he could be more romantic
-But sure - he tries to be.

And his hair once fine and golden
Is turning thin and gray
And the strength of youth is waning
-And more - each passing day.

Then he asks her one day - plainly
"Just why do you still care?"
She just looks at him and smiles
"I've found a treasure rare!"

...A gentle soul won't fade away
-It's as the purest gold
For it won't decay or tarnish
-And never shall grow old.

Very well said, Denise. Real love does not grow old, lose its appearance or luster. Too bad there's not more of it

Denise...I am absolutely floored by the magnitude of this piece. It is esqusite indeed. Wonderfully written and so moving in its subject matter. True love that stands the test of time is far more precious than gold. BRAVO!!!!BRAVO!!!!

Wow, Denise! This was fantastic-gonna have to print it off and add it to my collection of "special" poems! (If that's okay with you) I love it, because it expresses some of my sentiments exactly. Thanks.

Wow! Thank you everybody for all your kind words and for taking the time to read and comment. It is much appreciated.

Elizabeth, why of course you can print it if you'd like! (I'm flattered that you'd ask)

Thanks again!
