The man with the beard



He hid his blemish
With a luxuriant beard
His eyes were still sad

He stood up erect
Despite his old injury
Honoring the dead

She loved him so much
Even his lopsided smile
How he cherished her

  4. The poem and picture make me think of growing old with someone. You still see all the beauty, even as the years pass, no matter what the mirror or photo might say.
