True Love

I hold your face between my hands
And run my thumbs along your unruly brows,
Reddish brown flecked with wiry gray.
I look deep into your eyes and see
The good and faithful man who loves me.
You say, ‘Have you seen my wife?’
I look off into the distance and reply,
‘Oh yes, I saw her holding your
Face between her hands.’

This made me tear up. My dad was just diagnosed with dementia and my grandmother had it. I wish there was a way to reverse it. V

Wanted you to know that I was in a meeting two days ago at church and Jack Fox read this poem from your book. It was fitting for our meeting. I smiled once again as I chocked back a tear realizing the sincere beauty of this poem. Thank you, Elaine!

Those eyes have seen a lot in the years they have been around. Touching image.

This is so touching. Lost my grandmother at this disease, my mother showing the same signs. Your words perfectly discribe the feeling. V
