Description: Obviously this is about my wife, but there's more to the story than that. I've always believed my wife to be beautiful, but my observation of her never made her lovely, she always possessed that attribute. What we believe we are is what we become, and what others see in us is only an affirmation of what was already there. The eye looks from within to reveal character, not from without to judge it.
Eye of The Beholder -------------------------------------------
I used to think
now I'm sure
you couldn't touch
it with a smile,
and transform dust
and there's nothing
so lovely, m'lady,
you couldn't elevate
its divinity to a

this is a sweet ode to your wife, simple and straightforward. beauty shines from the inside of a person, and we are blessed to bask in that glow. what a treasure you have in her and she has in you. @ Cat
A nice simple write. No complex emotions, no elaborate language but despite those assets, I didn't quite get the last stanza. She can't elevate divinity to a separate heaven? If that's correct either I missed something or its a typo, most likely the former. Anyway, I enjoyed reading this, nice work.
To me, the best kind of love poems are ones like these.. that come from years of knowing someone and still seeing beauty in that person. I enjoyed this and the description given of it. Looks may be what first draws us to someone.. but inner beauty and love is what keeps us.. what holds us together. I like the first part where you state it isn't your love that makes her beautiful.. but the fact that she "just is".
I too, didn't quite get the last part.. but it sounds nice ;)
How beautiful , your wife will be so pleased with this and i'm sure she feels the same , you are lucky there arnt many who find there soul mate but i can see from reading this you know that. take care Lainie x
It's always nice to see such an infatuation between a husband and wife ;) Gives some of us hope. The poem itself was done well, short and to the point but not hurried by any means. A simple description of something words cannot completely describe. I was a little lost near the end, but other than that I liked it. Good job. I'm sure you're wife will like it.
This is very beautiful. To me the last stanza simply means that there's nothing so lovely that she could not make it even more so. She elevates the beauty of everything. Which is a fabulous sentiment. Thanks for writing this I really enjoyed it. And I can find no fault with. Bill
