MIRROR


YOU CAN DO WHAT I DO
MOVE WHEN I MOVE,
DANCE WHEN I DANCE,
SING WHEN I SING
JUMP WHEN I JUMP,
LAUGH WHEN I LAUGH,
SMILE WHEN I SMILE
CRY WHEN I CRY,
POINT BACK WHEN I POINT AT YOU
DO LIKE I DO.
HAPPY WHEN I'M HAPPY,
SAD WHEN I'M SAD
-BUT AT THE END OF THE DAY
NO MATTER WHAT YOU DO AND
HOW GOOD YOU CAN BE AT IMITATING ME
YOU COULD NEVER FEEL THE PAIN I'VE FELT,
UNDERSTAND WHAT I'M FEELING,
BE THERE FOR ME WHEN I NEED YOU THE MOST,
WIPE MY TEARS WHEN I CRY,
LOVE ME FOR WHO I AM, NOT FOR WHAT YOU DESIRE TO SEE,
TALK TO ME WHEN I'VE DONE WRONG,
TELL ME THAT I'M BEAUTIFUL EACH TIME I LOOK AT YOU,
OR RECOGNIZE IF I'M WEARING A NEW DRESS, OR
HAVE A NEW HAIRSTYLE,
YOU WOULDN'T TELL ME TO CORRECT THE MISTAKES I CAN'T SEE.
SIMPLE BECAUSE YOU ARE JUST MY REFLECTION
THAT APPEAR ONLY IN THE LIGHT, IN THE DARK
YOU CAN'T SEE,
YOU ARE MY REFLECTION
-MY MIRROR.

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Young Love lies sleeping
In May-time of the year,
Among the lilies,
Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
