my mirror

When I look in my mirror, I see a momma tired, eyes on the verge of overflowing with tears of exhaustion.

When I look in my mirror, I see hair that’s not as curly as it used to be.

when I look in my mirror, I see a face and figure swelled many times its youthful size from motherhood and maternity.

When I look in my mirror, I see the woman I am afraid I am becoming.

When I look in my husband’s eyes, I see the energetic and enthusiastic girl he fell in love with.

When I look in my husband’s eyes, I see a hairstyle that’s never the same but that he always loves to run his fingers through.

When I look in my husband’s eyes, I see the curves he adores.

When I look in my husband’s eyes, I see the woman I want to be.

When I look in the mirror of my husband’s eyes, I forget what the mirror on the wall is trying to tell me.
