    the hairs of your head
    silver and brown
    recedes only
    atop your regal pate

    i see your
    wisdom
    ageless, expansive
    i would have you
    bald
    to guide me

    the smile of your eyes
    are dim
    only because of frames
    and lenses resting
    upon your nostrils

    i see you
    clearly
    would take you
    blind
    naked
    beside me

    the limp in your gait
    is only a trophy
    from your glory
    days as an all-star
    athlete

    you are
    my strength
    that i shall keep
    long
    forever
    inside me

    A beautiful thought to grow & age and despite the physical
    changes still you love that person as if it were like the first time
    you knew you were in love....with them.

    A lovely piece Hadassah.
