When you look into the mirror, what do you see?

This image found at ETSY and is created by:
Blackraptor Art

There are two eyes, a mouth and a nose.
Is there more than that, do you suppose?

Does this face only fill a frame, or give some clues to it's heart?
Does a face make only a refection or more than what images mark?

This is a face that shown joy and been the path for tears of regret.                                                 
This face is holding on to hope for the things its not seen - yet.

Are there freckles on forehead from days in the sun?
Are there crows feet and laugh lines from smiling for fun?
Are there dimples, or blemish, and tiny white scars.

This is a face has seen life and death and the spaces between.                                                           This face has held hopes and seen the crashing of dreams.

This face has been kissed and it's been turned away.
This face has seen much more than what is showing today.

When I look into the mirror, what do I see?                                                                                       
I see a face that lives life to the brim,
no matter what tomorrow
may or may not be.
