Looking Ahead

By knowing you,

I find myself.

Now and 90 years wrinkled.

My doubts don’t exist in your eyes.

You see the chipped edges and

places worn raw from not retreating.

The rough, abeyant curves of my puzzle.

You see my essence of spirit.

gently holding it all up,

like a mirror before me,

so that I can see,

for myself,

who I am becoming.
