Long Gone Love
Tasting the Night
>> View all 59
It's been twenty years and more
So when I came through the door
I was nervous, as an old love tends to be.
You were as lovely as before
As we hugged and kissed once more,
But what you asked your children,
Darling, touched me to the core:
Isn't he gorgeous, you cried,
And that's when I realized,
That you see me through yesterday's eyes,
Darling, you see me through yesterday's eyes.
Our features always fade with time and age will always take its toll,
But loving hearts see through this masquerade,
With loving eyes you see into my soul,
Darling, you see me with yesterday's eyes, sweet woman,
And the things you do make me see you, through yesterday's eyes.
It's only fair for me to say
When I think of you today,
That I see you, love,
Through yesterday's eyes,
Yes, I see you through yesterday's eyes.

|Lovely and very very true. You should write songs. You have a musical sense of language!|

|Sigh. Yes to those Yesterday's Eyes. My parents passed away 10 years ago, I was an adult, and they gettting up there... but I still remember them as they looked when they were young, and vital, and I was but a child...
And ... indeed ... It's a blessing when you can age with your spouse, side by side, and still see him/her with Yesterday's Eyes...
Live Long and Prosper, Jerry.

I love old photos like this. Have one of my dad from 1930. Nothing quite like them.
