He and She

This weekend I met two wonderful people. He is 86 and she is 79. He was worried about her recent series of health problems. She was worried about him worrying about her.

We talked about books, authors, poetry, history and dying. They want me to come visit and I may.

She sent him home early that night (because she was being admitted and wanted him to get something to eat) and then we talked and she said something like this:

“I look in the mirror and I sometimes see me as old, but when [he] looks at me, he always sees ME and not someone old – and when I look at [him], he looks handsome, healthy and young - the same to me as he always has”
