MLMM Sunday Writing Prompt

The teenager looked into his girlfriend’s eye and said, “I will love you forever. You are so beautiful.” The girl looks back and believes every word. She wants to believe it.

The young college graduate turned to his now roommate and said, “I will love you forever. You are so beautiful.” The young woman feels loved.

The thirty year old man, harried from work, came in the door, sees his wife struggling and said, “I will love you forever. You are so beautiful.” The harried mother just looks back at him.

The sixty year old man was tired, returned from a thankless job, said, “I will love you forever. You are so beautiful.” The woman resting in bed, smiles quietly.

The seventy year old man adjusts his wife’s pillows and says, “I will love you forever. You are so beautiful.” The woman cannot manage even a smile, but takes his hand.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and this man’s truth never faltered in his vision of his wife.
