in the mirror

I look in the mirror
this body has seen better days
things I can change
with effort and time
things I'll never get back
age destroys us all
it's all downhill from here, babe
I look in the mirror
and think of old glories
whereas then, I didn't care
I looked like me
whatever I looked like
when I looked in the mirror
I never realized I was pretty
I couldn't understand
why the women were envious
when they looked at my girlish figure
now I understand
now I get it
and when I see the young women
I too, am envious
and yet he finds me
beautiful and desirable
this old bag of a body
he hungers for me
for touch and closeness
for intimacy
because this body is mine
falling apart as it is,
it houses my soul
and my soul is beautiful
but I can't see my soul
when I look
in the mirror

Wow this is a really good one. I love it, and it is so true. I wish so often that we weren't physical beings, that we could simply connect with each other by virtue of our inner beauty.

Thank you for liking this one so much! :) And thanks for your emphasis on inner as opposed to outer beauty. I like that lots. *hugs*
