Choose with your heart

by Lucio Muñoz

Those who choose with their eyes will soon fine out
That time is their worse enemy
As external beauty is not eternal;
Those who choose with their heart
See the passing of time as friendly
As they would value love ones using beauty that is internal.

Therefore, if looking long-term, choose with your heart,
Not with your eyes,
As if all goes well you will be happy from the start,
And remain happy even after physical beauty dissipates.
