Prompt 47: Catch up on my blog…Freewrite! (This is my prompt for the next however many I need to get my blog caught up)

Another Small Line

He has lines on his face that crinkle his eyes
And he can’t hide his smile lines, even if he tries.

The hair on his head may have lightened a shade or two
Some say it is a direct result of the stress he’s been through

If you look very closely you’ll see his hands shake

and his health is maintained by the pills he has to take

But he has memories that take him to a different place
when his life went by at a much slower pace

He remembers and tells us about when times were tough
and sometimes they just barely had enough

But each experience, and every hard time
just adds to his face another small line

So all the wrinkles have their own story to tell
about the man who lived his life so well
