The mirror tells no lies they say
So how then, can this be
The person that I’m looking at
Can’t possibly be me.
I feel the same. I think the same.
Inside I haven’t changed,
But when I see my reflection
It seems all rearranged.
There’s hills and valleys everywhere
And certain things have dropped.
What once was flat and sinewy,
Looks like it should be chopped.
I’ve watched my parents age
And I’ve seen my children grow,
But I thought that when it happened to me,
I’d be the first to know.
