Within My Eyes
by Danny Eugene Olson
There was a day
when we were young;
Running, dancing, making love...
feeling as free as the clouds above.
Many years have gone by now-
our skin is wrinkled
our eyes are dim;
running and dancing aren't within.
In these golden years
there's one thing I know for sure...
Your beauty within my eyes
has not changed with the same demise.
So, just remember one thing, my love,
*** Love grows deep, not old. ***
