Weathered, weak, and weary
the reflection doesn't lie
as I face another morning
in this charade called life

The mirror shows the years
in all the lines upon my face
as I strive to cover and conceal
on the surface, what I can't erase

Life's trials and tribulations
disappointments, toil, and strife
brought wisdom, strength, and charactor
to this lover, mother, and wife

So many parts to play
so many lines to memorize
I search for inspiration
raise my eyes and whisper "why?!"

Then bleary eyed and touseled
the mirror reflects another face
as my son whispers "Good morning"
all doubts vanish, with out a trace
