I look in the mirror and what do I see. That is not my face looking back at me. Where have those lines come from that pallor of skin, that face is in such the type  mess I never want to be in.

Look at the worry that pours forth from those eyes they are no longer blue , they no longer challenge the skies. Lips once red now seem so grey, almost dead.

My hair, no longer lustrous or long is now grey and in tatters, something is disastrously wrong. I look in the mirror and what do I see. That is not my face looking back at me.

Who stole the hours who took them away how did years fly when it only felt like days.  Where are my children where are my friends is this really all there is, is this where it ends.

      Please don’t cry for what you cannot change rather smile for what you can change….. Looks like I should take my own advice. Thank you for being there. xx

    Sad but so very beautifully written! Its amazing that i found myself thinking about the changes that i see in the mirror…yes the flesh changes but the spirit, the new body is oh so beautiful..we will never have the changes of our present cell again…we will be free from its daily changes. Your post leaves a lot to ponder!
