An older woman looking back, no more a spry young lass
Where did she go that youth so fair gone with setting sun?
I rather miss her now she’s gone; I hope she’s having fun
Whose hands are these upon my arms; do they belong to me?
I’m sure that mine were smoother, and not wrinkled as I see.
What’s that you say, I did not hear, could you repeat again?
I thought I heard quite clearly, but I can’t remember when
Things have changed as time has passed too quickly do I see
I don’t quite know how I should feel ‘bout this one who is me
Will I like her and accept her or think that she is tainted?
Time will tell I suppose; but I think I’ll get acquainted
I went again to that glass but getting there was slow
Will she be there, the girl I mean, the one that I did know?
Searched closely the reflection, when what to my surprise
A smile that stretched from ear to ear with twinkles in her eyes
Why this is her! I know that smile; she never went away
She’s aged a bit, but I can see that she will always stay
Deeper into her eyes I find the hope she’s always had
Yes, I am quite at home with her; which makes my heart so glad
Thank you Lord, for keeping her safely in your care
For charity and blessings of your bounty You did share
The youth I was, and who I am shall never really part
For in this age old body lies the youth within my heart
