Onlookers See

Love…
…is easily seen, or the lack of it noticed, by anyone who watches a couple interact. Oblivious of anyone looking a couple shows them self truly to the other and to anyone who observes them from nearby.

English playwright and novelist William Somerset Maugham
We are not the same persons
this year as last;
nor are those we love.
It is a happy chance if we,
changing,
continue to love
a changed person.
