Rose Colored Glass

He sees the rose in her cheeks
  She sees the wrinkles of time in her mirror

He sees the long, flowing brunette of her shining hair
  She sees the wisps of grey, dull hair that she cannot manage

He sees the shine and twinkle in her soft blue eyes
  She sees her reflection through corrective lenses

He sees her running through the garden to greet him
  She feels the pain, as she walks with her cane to meet him

He holds the soft, smooth hand that wears a simple golden band
  She feels him squeeze her weathered, gnarled, vein ridden hand

He sees the girl he met and loved at seventeen
  She sees the love of her life

He sees through rose colored glasses
  She adores him

Dedicated to my grandparents
