she wonders

who’s face is in the mirror?

Once shining eyes now look back with less sparkle

there are fine lines where once smooth skin lived

gray shows in her once crimson hair

and she wonders

there have never been abs carved of stone

but now they are sporting spare padding

her once pert breasts hang slightly lower

and her ass once firm to the grasp has a softer tone

It is not just the outward things that make her stop

Her eyesight is not as sharp as before

Her hearing, well the radio is louder these days

and there are aches and pains where once there were none

so she wonders

How long will she turn his head before he looks and turns away

Will age and time make him see all that she fears

Or is it true that love is blind

Will he see they grey in her hair  and grimace

or does he look at it and smile

Knowing that each one marks the passing of time

The time she lives in the crook of his arm listening to the beat of his heart

She knows you can not stop time

But she wants to

Back to the moment of that first kiss

of her first night in his bed

of the first time she heard him tell someone she was his

to those moments when she forgot her age

and when she was a little lighter and tighter and sexier

at least in her own head

back before she looked in the mirror and wondered

    This is so touching. Share it with your man…he will hold you close and you will know how much he adores you and, though the time has passed, he would take that same path again just to be where he is now with you and so excited about the future. I really liked this, beautiful!
