Your Glorious Innermost

I can see the worry in your eyes…

A distance,
A troubling horizon
That you fear,

A deep burden…

Pending,

Reflected in your gaze.

But just consider this,
My love…

You have a strength
Unlike any other,
To defend your hopes
And dreams.

You have a clarity
To see what is
To be held
So dear in your life.

You have depth of soul
That transcends
All the demons of despair.

All of this beauty,
Is so richly,
And delicately woven
Throughout the strength
Of you,

The woman
That provides me
Safe harbor,

The woman
That radiates
Elegance in my eyes,

The woman
That defines…

Courage and grace.

So as you face
This challenge,

Know two things…

Firstly,

I am here for you,
Always.

And secondly,

Yours is a beautiful portrait
Of all that is right and good,
With the tempered steel
And unrelenting resilience
Of my heroine,

And my forever dream.

This artistry
And power,
Are in you…

I see it everyday,

I feel it everyday,

It’s all there,

Right there,

In your glorious innermost.

  3. Una mirada puede decir sin palabras infinitas cosas.. No existe otra parte del cuerpo que tenga tanta carga emocional como unos ojos.. El escritor español Miguel de Unamuno dijo: …”Hay ojos que miran, hay ojos que sueñan”… ☺
