Old Man

I stare into the looking glass
I see an old man looking back at me
His face has a bewildering expression on it
His forehead is wrinkled with the passing of time
His smile is genuine, his words are sincere
His back is hunched with all the burdens he carried through his life
His mind is still strong, but his body has grown weak
All his life he did it alone
Now he must rely on the kindness of others
