She looks in the mirror;

What does she see?

Hair stained grey by the cruel hands of time;

A face lined with age, worn past its prime.


He looks at her;

What does he see?

A crown of silver upon the head of a queen;

The face of the loveliest girl he's ever seen...


Can't is a four-letter word ►

As it is often said, "beauty is only skin deep".A poem which exposes a myth and so well written.
Thank you

And there, my friend, you have hit the nail smack on the head. The silver crowned queen. I think as we get older our eyes get better at seeing beauty, we see beyond the depth of skin.
