Blink

I looked in the mirror
At a pubescent girl,
Starting to blossom,
Blink…..
A young woman,
Stared back at me.

I gazed upon
A baby girl,
Blink….
And a toddler,
Ran up to me.

A happy child,
Raced down the stairs,
Blink…
A beautiful bride,
Turned to me.

Looking in the mirror,
The wrinkles weren’t too bad,
Blink….
An old woman’s eyes,
Beckoned to me.

My rheumy eyes,
Are tired now,
It’s hard to even think,
I think it’s time
To say goodbye,
Blink….
