Heart Eyes - Poem by Don Wendorf

HEART-EYES
by Don Wendorf, Psy.D.; LMFT

Verse:
He can still see…
How she looked so long ago, the day they both began to know,
That they’d be together, care forever and they’d never cease to love each other.
Through his memory…
She looks willowy and tall, gliding ‘cross the campus mall like it’s still here.

In his mind’s view…
She’s that vision he still sees, floating towards him with the breeze,
With her silk dress flowing, long hair blowing, soft skin glowing golden in the sunlight.
He can tell you…
Of the sweetness in her face, as her slender arms embrace and draw him near.

Chorus:
So it isn’t that his vision’s weak and fuzzy,
Or it’s clouded by a past he’s dreaming of.
He both sees her as she was and is because he
Always sees her through the heart-eyes of his love.

Verse:
Yet he knows well…
Every roll and every wrinkle, every fold and every crinkle,
How some parts are bagging, others sagging, time is dragging down her youthful beauty.
He can still tell…
Gravity has taken toll, even on this loving soul he calls his own.

He sees clearly…
Where there’s now a bulging spot, now a blemish, scar or blot,
Where the skin is stretched, lines are etched, changes fetched by time’s relentless pull.
And sincerely…
He perceives her how she is: a real woman who is his and his alone.

Chorus:
So it isn’t that his vision’s weak and fuzzy,
Or it’s clouded by a past he’s dreaming of.
He both sees her as she was and is because he
Always sees her through the heart-eyes of his love.
