The fault in our starsl

From her tippy toes to the top of her head

Warmth rising

Flushing her cheeks

To a glorious rosy red

*

Giddiness, joy, elation

Her head did spin

Was it champagne

Or the thrills of daily life intoxication

*

A beautiful memory

A face looking at her

Feeling nostalgic

oh dear how young we were

*

Her life of spectacular moments

Tells story upon her beautiful face

Softness, fine lines

She is charming, full of grace

*

Youth lays behind

Only in time

Keep dreaming of that life

Passion keeps you in prime

*

The woman that was

Still buried deep inside

Longing to escape

Look deep for she is still within you, along for life’s ride

*

When it rains

Let’s run outside

We will look for a rainbow

There is so much more to life

There is so much more to know

*

Lay on the grass

When it is dark outside

Look up to the sky

Await the shining stars to arrive

*

Make a wish

Wish your dreams come true

Do something wonderful

Give back to beautiful you

*

Life may have left us with unseen scars

We remain staunch but with grace,

kind with defiance

The fault in our stars

*

This is

our turning point

our time of transition

A time in our life

It is our new definition

*

From light to dark

We shall shine inside

It may be grey, Imperfect

We move gracefully, effortlessly

through to the other side

*

Wisdom and experience

As we enter a new phase

Elegance, truth and love

We will continue to navigate to her next stage where

We will continue to amaze

*

Do not look backward

There is so much in front for you to see

Smile, skip, sit under a tree

Share stories of your dreams and all the things we wish to be

*

Stand out I yell

Take your life back

Age disgracefully, fabulously

With attitude, attack

*

Wear the red shoes

On feet that have stood ironing

for hours

Dance like everyone is watching

A women entrenched within her own superpowers

*

Wear red lipstick

On the mouth

That has spoken gentle words of love and kind

A mouth that shows such sweetness

A mouth that speaks no words of leaving youth behind

*

Sing and laugh out loud

Be you, be free

Now your kids are grown up say now

I will do what’s best for me

*
