COG - "Smile for the Camera"

The next Carnival of Genealogy challenge is to produce a school photo of ourselves and write an expressive comment, a quote, a journal entry, a poem, a scrapbook page, or a heartfelt article regarding the photo. Here is my submission.
The Texicanwife
Through A Young Girl's Eyes

A pretty, brown-eyed lass
With all of life in store
Wanting to grow up fast
She longed for so much more!

Back bent with hair turned gray
She says she’s seen it all
Dream’s that have gone astray
Pictures on a wall.

And yet, in the mirror’s reflection
Time’s price was well spent
For upon inward inspection
She knows where the young girl went.

Hidden way down inside
The young girl peers back
The dreams have never died
Held taut and never slack.

A love most rare and dear
A home to call one’s own
Family and friends so near
Where has the time flown?

Through eyes of youth she stares
At a woman grown old and gray
Passion and love stand still there
Forever and a Day.

Happy Birthday Crystal!
