When I look at you I see the truth.
I don't need to see a caped hero
nor do I need to see a Superman.
I only need to feel the strength of your love
and give back to you what you have given to me.
You have often said that you are not strong;
yet you have loved through illness and never given up.
You still love me when I have failed you;
yet you have never walked away
even when it would have been the easiest thing to do.
But when we go dancing on a Friday night
and when we dance slow as you hold me tight,
you make me feel like I am sixteen again.
You treat me like someone very special
even though we are not young but in our sixties.
See what I have come to see.
Know what I have come to know.
You don't need to fly
like someone else flies;
you are the Super Hero that stays.
