Although a wrinkle or two may betray our age.
They’ll never show the youth inside our aging cage.
They’ll never show that there’s life by the bucket load lift to live.
They’ll never reveal all the love we still have to give.
They might show how much we love to smile.
They might even give away we’ve cried from time to time.
Whatever those few wrinkles show to see.
I’ll welcome each one with grace and dignity.
