A rich, true surface.

Lovely laugh lines are a testament to happy, gay times,

freckles darken in the sunlight, when you play on the beach.

Crow’s feet show how much you’ve smiled,

and that those smiles have reached your eyes.

Your hands look gnarled after years of hard labour,

skin tans when you spend evenings swimming in the summer.

White hair show how much you’ve learned,

and how passionately you’ve lived this wonderful life.

Your face looks weather-beaten,

when you’ve been out in all weather.

Your outside reflects the amazing person inside,

celebrate it all, there is nothing to hide.
