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.

Denise, this is one of my favorites from you! I bet it's sent as an "ECard" a lot! And rightfully so, it's lovely!

Few people have good enough eyesight to see it, Denise. Excellent, as always.

Denise - What lovely sentiment you've expressed. So true for so many.
How wonderfully in love with love they are.
I've often thought those very thoughts when I've seen the older couples on the street holding hands and being so obviously ... still in love.

I visit many nursing homes to share poetry with them and I can tell you that ~forever love~ does exist.

I love rare treasures myself, and I've found a few. This is so sweet and beautiful.

Do your best, just keep on laughing
