For All Those Once Beautiful


For All Those Once Beautiful


For those of us

once beautiful ..

Remember this,

we were

only beautiful

for a moment

at the very most ..

And whilst

I know I’m not

as pretty as

I once used to be ..

Let’s drink

a toast to beauty

lost along the way ..

      I wonder if she had even the slightest inkling what she was getting into when she said I do

          Youth thankfully does not define beauty. There is beauty everywhere for those who look and inner beauty lasts forever. What’s more I recognize it when I come across it.

          Wisdom comes with age.

          I’ll always raise my glass to you Neville.

          • Neville

            Bless you Cassie .. & Cheers, I'll drink to that .. Neville

                  As always, a lovely piece. This reminds me of a quote: "Let's do it for the love that used to be here. It is reason enough." Something I find to be a beautiful sentiment.

                  • Neville

                    you are absolutely write Kinsey, that gift you have just laid here is indeed a beautiful sentiment .. thank you .. Neville

                        How can one be serious about existence? really? (excluding actual circumstances of course).

                        That beauty has only changed Neville, all are beautiful in differing ways.
