Face of Life

If I had but a moment's grace,
I'd gaze once more upon your face

On distinct features, weathered lines
where knowledge lives and ease reclines

Where eyes say more than winsome lips
their glance a touch like fingertips

A face that speaks of brimming life
of love and pain, both joy and strife

Visage of human beauty true
of faith and trust, and hope anew

The face reflects the complex man,
the sum of parts that lie within

With thanks to my usual, yet-always-unusual, inspiration.
