I look in the mirror
And who do I see
I see some one
but she isn't me

my lovely eyes
that glistened and glowed
they have been replaced
and are round and small

I look through them
but things have changed
my skin is tight and wrinkle free
I Know what you are saying
oh lucky me
I will have to disagree

my lips are thin and my mouth is small
that's not my face not at all
I used to have a smiley face
I do not remember when it was replaced
I wish they would bring my old one back
the one I had before SCLERODERMA attacked
and left me looking so unreal
oh well there's nothing I can do

my eyes are playing tricks again
I cannot see any flesh on my feet and hands
my fingers are tight my nails have ridges and dents
I am beginning to think they have been replaced
along with my face

My bones well they are not the same in fact
all they do is give me pain
my body aches and I'm always tired
and my fingers and toes they go blue
oh well there's nothing I can do

My lungs are in such a state they just do not want to co operate
with things I'd like to do
they're always wheezy and tight
NO I won't give up the FIGHT

so when I look in the mirror who do I see
I see some one she is not me
I am glad my brain is still intact
and tells me the person I see is me
but looking different than I used to be
and the person inside me well she is the same old me

Oh Lyndylou! Yes, you are the same old you and you always will be, we wouldn't have it any other way!

Take care.

Oh Lynn!

What a lovely and touching poem! :thank-you:

That's the absolute truth; you are the same underneath and it's the most important thing to remember. :flowers:

Much love and best wishes to you,
