Simply Me
Author: Catyrose


As another year approaches I note yet another strand of gray
Quite a few actually, oh hell, Iíll just wash them away
The wrinkles beside my eyes have gone further south
Seems they have taken up residence along the sides of my mouth
Long ago and far away, I once wore a size six and was proud to be on display
Oddly enough Iíve now doubled in size, at times I can hardly believe my eyes
I gaze in the mirror in front of me
And ask myself, who in the world is this women looking back at me?
I still see the twinkle in her clear blue eyes
Itís the rest of her I simply fail to recognize
Perhaps this is a new version of me
A woman in her later years
Learning to accept her greatest fears
No longer young in this worldís eyes
Age snuck up before she realized
Yet itís not as bad as I thought it might be
My mind is intact, senses are still keen
I still have quite a few years to achieve my dreams
Iíll not let a wrinkle or two (or more) stand in my way
Iíll cherish each moment thatís given to me
And revel in this life as I am finally free
To be none other than simply ME
