It was not

You stood in a Harris tweed coat
But it was not the coat.
Your blonde hair blew across your face
But it was not your hair.
Your brown eyes searched the area
But it was not your eyes.
There came a broad smile on your face
But it was not your smile
Your shape was something else to see
But it was not your shape.
Your nose shown the light of the sun
But it was not your nose.
There were prominent freckles there
But it was not the freckles.
It was something down deep inside
That lit me with a smothering pride
That filled my heart just to know
That there you stood from head to toe
The promise of my search my goal
The other half of my soul.

Every man on this planet should ask for an autographed copy of this to give to his Lady. Oh Sy, you outdid yourself. Thank you.

Wow Seymore...what can I say to this one to be looked at that way, to be loved for those reasons, I can think of nothing more flattering to a woman, your soul mate is indeed very lucky
