Life Lines

I tried my hand at another poem I titled Life Lines and dedicate to my children.

Life Lines
by Doreen Blanding
What are those lines I see
Staring so faintly back at me?
Lines around my clear blue eyes,
From worries of the days gone by.
Lines around the mouth I fear,
From smiling, giggling from ear to ear.
Lines on knuckles snarled with scars,
From driving with our teens in cars.
Lines in places not many view,
From babies that were long ov'r due.
Lines of love, joy, worries and fears,
Because I've loved you all these years.
