For Charlie

There is beauty in her old face
Transcending the sum of her years
Every line her memoir, carefully written
The script surrounding her features eloquent
Accentuating the wisdom in her spirit
Each crease perfectly etched in her history

Yes, there is beauty in her old face
Validating that she has lived and is alive
The melody of all she has ever been
In harmony with her struggles and victories
Playing sweetly, confidently her symphony
Bearing testimony to the beauty of who she is

Certainly, there is beauty in her old face
Artistically placed by experience and emotion
Perfected on every canvas of every new season in her life
Painted with just the right brush, uniquely hers
Each stroke adding texture to her life
Inspired by the strength of her confidence, her faith
