Mirrors

As a girl she passes a mirror

Hair of red..and eyes of green

Seeing a reflection of youth and smiles

Time passes by

She passes again..seeing time reflections

Seeing the happiness of Love and marriage

Time passes by

She passes again..seeing Life in her arms

Seeing a mother’s love

Time passes by

Hair of red turning gray

Eyes of green..brightness fading

Time passes by

As she passes one more time…

The mirror’s reflections showing age

She stops…and smiles

Time has passed

As she sees herself..as she is

Hair of grey..eyes of clouded green

She does not feel..like the image seen

Walking away, and up the stairs

She lays down

Closes her eyes..for a long sleep

Smiles and memories abound

Dreams of youth and laughter follow her thru this long night

Always within reach..never out of sight

Time has passed by

Mirrors
