Look In The Mirror, See What I See - Poem by Michael Peterson

If I had a dime for everyminute in time
I would be rich, when did it fly by
Look into the mirror, to see what I see
A young crew cut boy, all full of smiles
Was a clown with no frowns
Look again and time changed
A long hair Teen, in jeans
A rebel to the cause
Look in the mirror, see what I see
A clean cut service man
Lean and mean on the Army team
Times have changed so fast
Look in the mirror, see what I see
A working man, a family man
A daddy and hubby, fun along the way
Time flies, where does it go
Look in the mirror see what I see
Older man, worn and torn
A worker to the end, a grandfather on the mend
Wondering when did it change
Where's the boy, and the young man gone
Just this old worn happy man
Where he came from is everyone's journey
Look in the mirror, see what I see
