Continuity - Poem by ivor or ivor.e hogg

Although my love is growing old.
She is still beautiful to me.
Though what I see you cannot see.
I see her as she used to be.

Good looks may fade like fairy gold.
The outward signs do not fool me.
I see her as she used to be
I love her still as constantly.

Though I’m no longer young and bold.
I see her as she used to be.
Perhaps familiarity
dictates to you what you can see.

I see her as she used to be.
Epitome of all beauty
when I asked her to marry me.
Our love story as yet untold.
