Outlander Poems

His beauty is a mystery
To me
How this man ages, so very gracefully
I loved him from the moment we first met
Yet, as the experiences of living add their layers
Softly down upon him
He has emerged, fully formed
Deepened…..weathered like seasoned Oak
Strong and hardened to his core
A man of blood
A man of war….

And then there’s more
Lover, husband, father
Farmer, Chiefton, Family man
Man of the land, in which the blend
Of Love, Honour and Protection
Has strengthened his purpose
A man of God
A man of Grace
Burns in his eyes
Lights up his face

His beauty is still a mystery
To me
