His heart was as callous as a beat cop

As abraded as a stone in the desert

His eyes were filled with assessments

And regrets

Too many betrayals

Too much loss

It took most of his energy

To stay braced against the world

Then the softest light pried his lids apart

Unclenched his fists

Bathed the steel-hard lines of his face

In colours long forgotten

The soft light of a caring heart

A loving smile, a kindred soul

That light became everything he looked upon

And all of it, every ray, was her love.




Words and image are my own.
