“ The Face ” ~ I see ~

The face I see
Finds a likeness
Of one I know,
Yet ‘tis not clear
What years ago,
Familiar visage be…

Tho beyond score
Plus ten or more,
Enacts days stored
Of steady change,
In time sculpt crags
Upon judged mine,
While a viewed game
Of life’s erratic bane
Leaves me yet doubt,
Held the face I see
Be but of distant mind!

“ Look At Me ” ~ beneath the surface ~

 

If you should look

Beneath the surface,

You’ll see likeness

Didst hardly fade,

Despite time past

Held so its shade,

Though failed spare

Held masquerade,

Altering whole

The sum’s façade,

While signs of ware,

Offers but a shadow

Of my enduring soul!
