Reflections

Reflections in a mirror at times you will see
the fading of youth, how fleeting time can be.

In youth you take for granted the loveliness you see,
and time has no meaning for the young it would seem.

You grow and mature, life ever-changing;
oh how time can overtake you, always rearranging.

Perchance that special someone you will meet,
who comes along and sweeps you off your feet.
Perhaps a lifelong commitment you will avow to keep.

Life's precious moments a memory you will make,
either by a picture or a keepsake.

Of your firstborn, what a wondrous miracle.
A smile upon your face; the love in your heart
you feel for this child can be so unbearable.

Life ever-changing as you witness the passage of time;
through your loving eyes as you watch your child, sublime.

Perhaps before you know it, your child is now a man,
a family of his own to keep. When did this become a part of the plan?

Time is so fleeting, the years fly by in minutes.
Lines on your face, now that will make you grimace.

Reflections in a mirror at times you will see,
glimpses of your mother looking back at thee.

Little Owl this is another great piece of writing and as Jin has already said 'Glad you joined our little family'
My reflection in the mirror is of my Dad, such funny man miss him much.
Keep the words flowing you have a flair. Look to reading more of your thoughts.
Ooh I do love that picture of the baby Owl. Like clapping
