Leave your Mark

by Dolly'sPoems


We see the face, reflecting life within,
behind the frown or smile of growing age
the vibrant spirit held beneath the skin,
the eyes will tell.

A story here that must be told in words,
each one of us performs on this world stage;
so leave behind a song, just like the birds,
of hope and grace.

We see the face, the eyes will tell
a story here of hope and grace.
