Look In the Mirror

Look in the Mirror

When you look in the mirror… Smile

Remember the person who smiled back at you

So many years ago when you were young

Remember the person who spent time combing hair

Working to achieve that suave killer look

Smile when you remember your skinny self

Tanned muscular abs smooth clear skin long beautiful legs

When you look into the mirror look past the wrinkles

The waddle under the chin those flabby arms

That once held a young lover

They’re still there made for new young loves

Your grandchildren wrap them tightly

When you look into the mirror… Smile

And the face in the mirror smiles back

Forget fifty sixty or seventy think thirty

Stand naked and remember it is not the sags

Not the wrinkles nor the flab but rather

The person inside that creates the smile

The smile you shared with everyone

One that caught the eye of a lover

The one that gave off magnetic attraction

That is the real you the irresistible

Remember every body ages

Changes

Grows old on the outside

When you look in the mirror

Let your mind be young

Let your thoughts be beautiful

Let the love you once had

Continue to be genuine

Don’t be superficial

Look deep and remember the real you

You are still in there

When you look in the mirror… Smile
