'Cuz you are, aren't you?

Don't Look Away...

by Y. M. Roger

Oh, you are... are you? Contest Winner 
You are quite the O-C-D one, my dear, with crazy hang-ups galore –
  No foods can touch here
  No papers unsorted
  No hair left out of place
You are quite the mother, my love, with scars of all kinds to prove it –
  One tries your patience
  One tries your heart
  One just won’t let go
You are quite the optimist, bright eyes, with quips and smiles to share –
  Look for that sunshine
  Look beyond the shadows
  Look through positivity’s lens
You are quite a bit older, my sweet, than when you really turned heads –
  Away go the high heels
  Away with those short skirts
  Away go the flirty glances
For better or for worse, now, you are who you are –
  No denying the hang-ups
    One big beautiful family
      Look for that hidden smile
        Away and never forgotten . . . 

But, hey…NO ONE LOOK AWAY now!
      Cuz, baby? You are only getting started!
