hopeSame me
Less hair, a little belly
Same me
Lines around my face
Same me
loving a good beat.
Same me
ruling the dance floor
Same me
finding travel exciting
Same me
cities and towns to explore
Same me
brave on the outside
Same me
quivering inside
Same me
Older, wiser, sicker
Same me
beauty seen, valued
Same me
for all good, gratitude
Same me
for all evil, forgive
Same me
praying for strength
Same me
hoping for courage
Same me
one day at a time
Same me
joy to live
Same me
fear passed, hope flickers
Same me
no more old baggage
Same me
new destination, new journey
