Quest for Eternal Beauty

Beauty lies in the little imperfections we struggle to disguise

It has absolutely nothing to do with shape or size

It lies in the curl of our lips when we smile

In the arc of the waist that endeavours to beguile

In the stray strands of hair that kiss your forehead

In our quirks and eccentricities that we so dread

In the twinkle of the eyes that make life worthwhile

It can be seen in the ability to wear several hats; grow versatile

Perceived in the spring of a step and impishness awhile

Reflects in a heart abundant with gratitude and sans grudges and guile

It comes with the sagacity of cultivating a distinctive sense of style

In the courage to endure and conquer life’s each travail and trial

It lies in the ability to look beyond our selves and go that extra mile

Revealed in the poise to embrace the traces of time with grace

Apparent in the emotions and passions that animate your face

Allure shines through knowing we’re loved warts and all

Beauty reflects in the times when overcoming hurdles we emerge tall

  1. This is one of the best I have read from you. And that is saying something because almost all your poems make me smile and think at the same time. Loved it.
