Mystery Lady

Who is it I see In the mirror today? Who is that lady With hair of gray? Who is that woman With wrinkly skin And brownish spots And a double chin? It’s surely not I – It must be a joke! Perhaps I’ve dreamt And haven’t awoke! For I look young And smooth of skin. I’m clear of eye And certainly thin! So who’s that lady Whose image I see? Of one thing I’m certain – It isn’t me!

Thanks so much. Guess in later years we all look in the mirror sometimes and think, "That can't be me." Thanks again.
