Are You There?

I thought

it was time

to make up

with the woman

in the mirror,

so I uncovered

the rusty old

full length mirror,

only to find out

that she still

was not there,

but I could not

bring myself

to mirror her…

I stand there,

year after year,

and wonder if

she, too, waits

on the other side

of the mirror!


“Never forget that once upon a time, in an unguarded moment, you recognized yourself as a friend.”
