The Face in the Mirror

From “In Pursuit of Clouds”

By Deanna Bates

When did it happen?

The face in the mirror that looks back at me

The eyes of the girl inside see the worn face of a woman staring back

The lines map the stories of a traveled life.

A young marriage against all odds.

The years of baby yearning followed by the sleepless nights of baby getting.

The pain of loss and illness etch fault lines,

Marring the unblemished granite of youth.

When did it happen?

These ripples that wave my face

These eyes of a woman that stare back at me.

Am I the only one who still feels like a young person in a middle age body?  I think the biggest secret of getting older is that your body changes, but you’re the same person inside.  We gain more experience and life wisdom, but we still have the same hopes, dreams and fears of our youth.

ARE YOU EVER STARTLED WHEN YOU LOOK IN THE MIRROR AT YOUR AGING SELF?
