when did i
get here
woman in
the mirror
looking at
senior years
went from
newlywed
to the
nearly dead
what happened
in between
is a
mystery
flew by
so fast
like an instant
photograph
was living
life
blinked
it went by
over the
decades
didn't notice
myself age
walked past
a window
saw a face
i should know
eyes were
the same
for a moment
felt strange
couldn't
believe
i was staring
at me
where did
she go
the girl with
the glow
don't remember
getting old
friends said welcome
to the invisible
it isn't over
not by a long shot
still plenty time
on the clock
not gonna stop
cuz the bloom is off
can use
this time
to refine
my mind
reminisce about
loved ones missed
new
discoveries
write books
and poetry
stories to
be told
feed my
soul
wouldn't
trade
to have back
those days
youth and beauty
was a con
now that's
all gone
my not
recognize me
never been
more free
