A Stranger In The Mirror

I look in the mirror
and what do I see,
I see an old lady
look back at me.
Last time I looked
it seemed to me
I saw a young chick
of twenty three.
How could this happen?
Oh!  How can it be?
Old age is not something
that happens to me.
 Yet, here I stand
washcloth in hand,
scrubbing that wrinkled old face.

Ain’t life grand?


  1. I've got a similar woman living in my mirror! I keep telling her to scam, but she won't! :)

  2. The woman in my mirror looks like my dear grandmother and it is nice to see her occasionally. I do wish she did not have a double chin.

    1. Sometimes I see Mom sometimes one of my Grandmodthers or dthe other....sometimes my Dad.......somewhere in there I've lost ME.

  3. LOL!
    Sometimes it's not good to look in the mirror.
    I often find that after a glass of wine reflections can improve ...

    Have a good week

    All the best Jan

  4. Tried locking the door?

    I see different relatives in my mirror, too. In my mind I don't look like this, though!

    1. That's why it's such a shock each and every time. And no, locking the door doesn't help. It just slows down my escape.

  5. Must be an epidemic going around. I've got the same woman in the mirror. :-(

    1. WE'll have to get together and figure out how to get rid of her.

  6. I'm not shocked by the mirror too often, I still see the "inside" me, but any new photo of me brings home the aging factor rather harshly.

  7. Ha ha, that's me in a nutshell. I saw your comment on Going Gently and came over to say hi.


It's lovely to know someone else is out there. Please leave me a comment...pretty please.
