Mirror Image

I looked into a mirror

An image I could see

Was the face that looked right back

A true image –

Of the real me

Years of life are written

In the lines etched in my face

Years of pain forgotten

Many more of happiness

The eyes are still bright 

With humour and with love

I looked right at the mirror

And thought of the life I’ve had

I smiled back at the image

Go on life just do your worst

Up to now it’s not been bad

Nothing you can throw at me

Will ever make me sad

What is more it’s not done 

And I am still excited

That there is more to come
