When I look at myself, I see TIME

Time Passing ME by. 

took new selfies a few Days ago

After adding a few pounds in all the right places 

In which reminds me. ENJOY IT 

Before I turn into an Grumpy Old Granny.  

(wait a minute, I am A GRANNY!) lol

Listen to poem:
"bag of bones" I wonder if when you look at me You can't bring yourself to like the vanity Lost somewhere inside - I wonder if beauty lives..... in you??? Poor old lady; -perhaps you should not pass judgment For one day I might be Just Like You! By: PD

Your one of my wives. I'll always come back to you. No matter what you change into. We go to bed forgetting all sins and tommarow is new. And I'll get old too.

Few women have beauty that stays. Thats Gods mercy. Or else men would go wild.

A charming, yet truthful poem, PD. I love the honesty and self-awareness. You look mighty fine to me though. I'm sure your husband would agree too. Love always. RW

Beauty is what it is: this to somebody, that to another. When we die, the songbird that escapes from our hearts is beauty. Bravo Poet!

The head and the heart can keep you young for ever.Forgive everything along the way and everyone with no exception and fill yourself with love.Without judgmental thoughts about others or yourself, you will become the fountain of youth.You will move through each stage of life with the the joy of a child.But then I never grew up and that's the way I like;Thalia(Michael no more)Anne Ainsley.

My son (who happens to be 40) calls me "Old Lady", (an inside joke) I tell him I am just well seasoned. I love, love, love this piece.
