Beautiful Faces - Poem by Ana Monnar

You are as beautiful as you feel
Look at all those faces
Each has its own unique beauty
Every mother cuddles and embraces

All faces are beautiful – one of its type
Even twins have different features
Beauty marks, dimples, and smiles
Making them beautiful and gorgeous creatures

Remember the creams and astringent too
And as we grow older and show signs
When we frown, mope, glare, or smile
A few wrinkles and fine lines

Will begin to appear
Then there is patting and massaging
Those tiny muscles to grow firm
To avoid the deep circles and sagging

So continue feeling beautiful
Even on your worst day
Whether you are feeling great or ailing
Then you will receive much praise

When the strong wind whistles and howls
Feel the potent breeze on your face
Stop thinking about your worries
Just smile and thank God for your face

    I would love to have this rejuvenating poem of yours dedicated to my 81-year-old mother in Germany, who has such a tremendous life-energy, inspite of having recently already undergone a 2nd heart operation - still looking like 60 in her face with no wrinkles! ! A wonderful write! ! ! Warm regards from the Philippines! (Report) Reply
