What is the meaning of the ( )'s phrase in this excerpt from Sonnet 126 by William Shakespeare?

Time, like the glass or mirror, always reflects the truth

    Because this is one of Shakespeare's last poems with the theme that time destroys both love and beauty. But in this phrase, he's saying that the youth will remain beautiful, even if he grows older with time.
