Reflections on Narcissus

‘Tis brightness to be young
And in love with your beauty.
‘Tis power to be young
And in love with your strength.
‘Tis laughter to be young
And in love with your future.
‘Tis easy to be young
And in love with your reflection.

‘Tis grace to be old
And in love with life’s beauty.
‘Tis courage to be old
And in love with your scars.
‘Tis bold to be old
And in love with your history.
‘Tis brightness to be old
And in love with your love’s reflection.
