Magpie #168 Love's Vision

photo by Togan Gokbakar 

We've been together for so many years
Living with laughter and a few tears
I don't see the sagging nor any wrinkles
Loving your eyes that have a twinkle
Looking at you I can only see 
That gentle man who is everything to me

Thanks to Tess Kincaid for always providing
a provacative poke to our imaginations.
