Where the world comes to study the Bible

Through The Eyes Of Love

Knotted, arthritic hands—
Beautiful, symmetrical hands
Long tapered fingers
Tanned skin from outdoor living
Useful beyond belief
My wife’s hands.

Knotted, arthritic hands
Misshapen from age and disease
Not very nimble now
But still useful bane belief.

I know what others see
Hands as they are today
But I see beautiful, symmetrical hands.
My wife’s hands.

And a face, beautiful sparkling brown eyes
Full red luscious lips
Skin like warm ivory
A blush of dawn in her cheek
Lovely beyond belief.
My wife’s face.

Aged wrinkled skin
A brown age spot here and there
Eyes grown dim with time
Lips pale and thinner now

I know what others see
A face as it is today
But I see a face
Lovely beyond belief.
My wife’s face.
