To spread across her mirror

All the memories

Of a life rich in beauty

Many lonesome tears ago

I can relate. Those years ago weren't lonesome - far from it. But the changes that age brings about to the physical self sometimes brings about loneliness because our self-image messes with our self-esteem.
