_Looking beyond the flesh
I am learning to look beyond the flesh
to see her character and loveliness.
For years my vision was confined to earth
but now I see her and all that she’s worth.
For my short-sightedness had blinded me
to the hidden qualities of her beauty.
The elegance and grandeur of her grace
and the attractive smile upon her face.
Her life of poetry and righteousness
I now see in all its exquisiteness
The radiant character she displays
with new rhyme and poems I can praise
