True Love's Eyes
26 October, 2000
author: Rebecca Ditch-Hammack (aka Dreamer)


A Man doesn't have to be a white knight, to be one of the good guys
Nor does a girl have to be a the princess, to be his bride
One can be loved without the other
And in harmony the two will survive

He does not have to be a Rhett Butler
Nor she the Scarlett O'Hara in name
Yet their faces can stand the tests of time
Forever together perfectly framed

It's who is inside the shell
It's everything and nothing in part
It's happiness, and comfort in the look of their eye,
It's the peace and excitement you feel in your heart

It's the good and bad, the triumph ..and defeat
It's in sharing the victory ..and fall
Standing in unison with understanding
And the patience when it's not your call

It who's inside that counts the most
No matter to look and design
Its the whole person rolled into one package
And with imperfection... the perfect find

a college student's voice

I'm a college student in Colorado and I'm recently taking a poetry class. Our most recent assignment was to memorize any poem and I picked yours. This poem explains what love truly should be. How it's not the perfectness of love, but the imperfect part that matches two people together. I loved your peom and thank you for sharing such beautiful work.

Perhaps we are truly mature when we accept the inevitability of imperfection in all creation. Raging against our own and others seems so fruitless and sad much energy and time spent on nothing but pain and terror. Though provoking as always sweets, K
