She use to be Rae

From what she was in high school
to what she is right now
Some may  consider a phenomenon
while other marvel how

I remember the face of the cool cool girl
in the class before me
Vanilla chocolate was her flavor
a favorite for sure I've seen

Though thirty years has past 
there was still something to see
She was the woman I always knew from a child 
the woman with ageless beauty

You know the color of her lips
and the mascara around her eyes
you know the shape of her cheek bones
her boney fingers and perfect smile

There is a beauty that we call elegant
often found on wedding days
but rarely doe's this elegance
grace our wrinkles and grays

Yet I still wondered where she came from
this woman of grey delight
Always high maintainence 
always someone's wife

But how shall I describe her 
this woman that I know
The immortal beauty that took others places
Others that were there before she showed

Destiny is a force that cannot be stopped
The place where she is that awe and shocked
time is a blessing depending on how it's spent
But beauty is a lesson testing the bearer
and the one to whom beauty was sent

Though I speak of thousands of women
there is one that looks the best 
The queen of all the goddesses
for whom there is no contest

The woman I see is timeless
she hasn't always been the rage
But now that she's past fifty 
she wears the beauty of that age

But looking past the beauty 
is the life you may not see
The horrors of real life
hidden by ones fantasies

When makeup is mostly for mirrors
and not the world outside
Beauty is only a mask
and compliments sooth the pride

The shell of forbidden beauty
hidden by an unattainable goal
And yet this untamed beauty
may posess a lonely soul

And life may hold larger things
than we could ever imagine
But what can be more beautiful
than this wonderful distraction.

    Beautiful, John. I know the fear every woman faces when aging. I'm not yet 50 but I do dread it. Thanks for this lovely piece.
