Age spots, skin tags
Fine lines and wrinkles
Dull, thinning hair
Sags and bags
Wimpy brows and lashes
The softness was gone
The face looked familiar and yet…
With a jolt she turned away from the mirror
Where had all the years gone?
When had she lost her youth?
It seemed to happen overnight
Not so long ago she was in her twenties
And now, she was in her fifties.
Where had those thirty years gone?
Before she looked ahead and now…
She was looking back
Life seemed to be in a hurry now
She wanted it to slow down, slow down
Then these words came to her,
“Wisdom belongs to the aged,
and understanding to the old”
She turned back to the mirror and smiled
Being old wasn’t such a bad thing and she was blessed.
