let these wrinkles be to me
the signs of a soul growing into
the folds of an aging body
a record of laughter
the story of hope in suffering
long stretches of silence
making peace with shadow
creased joy and tough love
memories of your touch
the gentle caress
of a trembling heart
as if skin could teach me
how to be at home in myself
by making a home in You
