Is That You?

I saw through the mist
a face I didn’t recognize

Eyes
Tired from a life
of burning the candle
at both ends.

Hair
Silver from a
lifetime of worry
about her children.

Double Chin
From enjoying a few
too many drive thru
meals on the run.

How did this happen
she asks herself as she
wipes steam from
the mirror.

Mom I’m home echoes
through the house.
She smiles and shakes
her head.

Remembering how she
Loves her life.
