seventy

And I see you

the wrinkles in your eyes

the laugh lines

the callouses in your hands

I see you
the years of hard work

the highs and the lows

the victories, the heartaches

And I see you

the love you endured

the growing pains

the health scares, the fear of death

I see you

the human frailty

the finished lines and the starting overs
I see you

the fear, the longing

the unspoken words

the waned confidence

the failed understanding

the confusion and imperfections
And I see you

the human spirit

a strong heart

a great provider

the humble ways

And still I see you

the love and faithfulness

a simple mind, the giving hands

a testament to life, to love

a quiet greatness

a good man
