I know I have already shrunk

and my body looks a bit droopy,

last but not least my waist is gone.

But once in a while when I find

a youthful pretty dress to wear

I’ll forget and try it on.

It’s most confronting

when the mirror shouts

your not the one you were before

this doesn’t suit you anymore.
