As a youngster, I looked for a figure,
With a rearend so fine, and a chest much bigger.
A face like an angel, a waist like a thimble,
Looks were important, it all seemed so simple.

But age makes one change,
Looks are deceiving,
It's not the beauty outside,
But the thoughts worth receiving.

They say that beauty's,
In the eye of the beholder,
And what's beautiful to me,
Has changed since I've grown older.

That's not age, Toerag, it's maturity.

That was sweet! I have to agree with Sue there, I think it is maturity. And that doesn't always come with age.

Look at it this way, Elvira - If they're all of those things, they're probably at least loyal and faithful as well!!...

Toe, I loved your poem. It makes me so glad to think there is one man out there that isn't dashing off, gold chains around his neck in his fancy red sports car honking at the 20 year old blond jogging on the side of the road! (was that a long sentence or what?)
