A Map of a Journey

beauty cannot be displayed
on the cover of a magazine
for it is a light
that shines from the soul
and has nothing to do
with cosmetics

in her eyes I see
the unmistakable
sparkle of youth
undiminished
even after
92 trips around the sun

wrinkles are a map
of the journey of a life.
on some, they tell a story
of scowls and bitterness
but yours speak
of a life filled
with hard work
and hearty laughter
