When I Look At You

When I look at you

What do I see?

The girl who first caught my eye,

Who caused my heart to stop


Mischievous glance

Illuminating smile

Nonchalant grace

Captivating spirit


I see through the years

Beneath the lines of passing time

Before the toil and strife of life

Implicated you with its scars.


The smiling and trusting you

Full of hope and adventure

With life stretched out before her

And I smile once more.


Now both of us alive again

Vibrant in each others embrace

Adventure running through our veins

You still captivate my heart.


Unfailing love

Sacrificial grace

Entrancing smile

Passionate touch
