Wrinkles At Bay

WRINKLES AT BAY

When I was young

the value of my beauty

I did not fully understand,

But now, as I age

the cost I comprehend.

If I had realized back then

wrinkles cannot be held at bay,

I may have lived my life

In a very different way.

More laughter and sun bathing,

laugh lines be damned

More tequila and much dancing

that would be my plan.

I would let the wrinkles come,

bathed by the sun,

and wear out the soles

of many boots

while having lots of fun.
