    In his eyes he see's beauty and grace, pleasant of face, body of perfection.
    In my mirror is this middle aged woman, still holding her own but not what she was.
    The body takes more effort , as does the face.
    So I focus on inner beauty and peace and grace.
    In his eyes I am his dream deferred, his first love the one that got away, second chance for romance for ever and a day .
    In my mirror he is my eternal dream who first made me feel like sweetened cream, my eternal love, that always lived in my heart, the only chance for romance for ever .
    Never did I give up on love cause he didn't seem to stay.
    Always part of me feeling as though this time would come again.
    I guess that's why now I mirror my image in the loving reflection of his eyes...And I don't apologize...for not being perfect anymore!
    Cause I am more than just his future/past I am his lover/friend!

    Well Rich it's like my Grandmother says, it takes a lil sugar and some salt to make a cake...been a lot a salt around lately, thought I would lay a lil sugar in the mix...thanks for reading...I don't know if you totally followed me cause , I still see a middle aged woman when I look in the mirror, but it's just alright now, as before I just wanted to be able to compete with these youngun's , but no need, I got my King and everything!:kiss:
    Blessings on Ya House!

    Thanks PD and Soja!

    "Singing and Dancing and getting merry like Christmas" was the title of a Maya Angelou book, y'all should read it sometime. It opens your mind and your spirit to all hope and possibility.
    Like the old song say's "I was about to give up and then you came along...having your tender ways , loving me everyday!
    Yes, MsLuciousB is about to be MRSLuciousB...And I sing to the God of Love the one who"IS LOVE" for "GOD IS LOVE"...
    BLESSINGS ON YA HOUSE!:D
