Love’s many reasons

My face has a few wrinkles
Body parts have sagged
My skin tone in places limp as a rag
The color in my hair the result of a dye
Imperfections unveiled yet with you I’m not shy
You see me forever the young girl I was
When we met and locked eyes and 
Knew it was love

Whether eighteen or eighty
In your eyes I remain
That beautiful woman whose devotion you claimed
With the touch of your hand and encouraging smiles
Together we’ve traveled down life’s many aisles
And this one thing I know forever to be true
Through the years I have always been blessed to have you.
