This is the face that I live in
She stares me in the eye
each minute of my life
I have learnt to know the woman
beneath this oval-shaped
golden-toned and warm face
Her laughter lines and crinkles around the eyes
say life is too short, don’t take yourself too seriously
make the best of it while you can.
The hidden depths of her eye’s
speak of mystery and message that lurks within
they have known the joy and the sting in life’s sharp tails.
This is the face that I live in.
I wouldn’t know how to live in another face.
for this is mine. Mine alone and IT IS beautiful!
