The bright eyes revealing his soul. The scar above the right eye a result of playful childhood recklessness.
Memories faded as the years flew by, but the humor remained as the body slowed.
The mirror reflected a shriveled stick figure. A neck bent forward like a bird. Smiling with closed lips concealing the missing teeth. The overhead light danced off a hairless, mottled dome. But the scar remained, and that still made him happy.
