Reflection


Who is this looking back at me?  

She touched the glass hesitantly  

Familiar in a far off sense  

As if we’ve met but never since  

A pretty girl in a certain way  

Lost somewhere she will not say  

An impelling  plea in her blue, blue eyes  

Find me! Save me! their reflection cries  

Once we knew each other well  

Perhaps again, time will tell  

She touched the glass hesitantly  

Who is this looking back at me?

  1. It is so difficult to look at the reflection of one’s self and recall the person you see and their dreams…but as you say, perhaps someday we will know them again…so well said.

  2. really sweet poem – reminds me of teens just trying to get a grip.

    thanks Moon sis for your kindness and your visits

    1. Thank you. Isn’t it funny how that feeling doesn’t seem to end with our teens though 😉 Nice to have you stop in again. You are always most welcome on ‘my side’.
      Moon hugs backatchya!

  3. wow. i love this!! 🙂
    we ourselves can break our own hearts. we lose the confidence, the will, the hope and then, what do we have left? a reflection and a memory of the past.
