The Beauty of Love
The Question is Asked, Is there anything more beautiful in life
Than a young couple clasping hands
With pure hearts on the path to marriage?
The Answer is Given.
Yes, there is a more beautiful thing!
The spectacle of an old man and old woman
Finishing their journey together on that path.
Their hands are gnarled, but tightly clasped;
Their faces are seamed, but still radiant.
Their hearts are physically bowed and tired,
But still strong with love and devotion for one another.
Yes, There Is A More Beautiful Thing Than Young Love !
