Reflections


I look into a mirror

and what do I see

a confused woman staring back at me

At times I forget who I am were I am what am I doing

Then as I stand there reflections race across my mind

My friends...My Family....Loved ones come and gone

Then I smile at my reflection that looks back at me

And see a woman that has made her mark upon this world

I have loved and been loved

I have family that care

I have people in my life that care about me

What more can a woman ask for

SMILES...perhaps a lovers company...to keep me warm at night

To hear my heart beat to life...who makes me smile and laugh

Yes perhaps one day... but I should be content with my life

With what stands before me as I see my reflection in the mirror

I smile and nod...yes I am happy to be just me

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
