Shadows in the Mirror

It is twilight on this winter’s day

The sun has left us and no more play

A refusal of letting go

Hanging on for one more show

Hearts are broken

Tears fall, down

Stay quiet now, without a sound

The mirror is a haunting glass

Shadows reflecting from her past

Seeing the face of the one she adored

A self-loathing man, he abhors

Everything about her now, the world and all its wonders that be

The mountains high above the rolling land, the seas crashing into the warm soft sand, the loveliness of her heart and hand.

This bitter man she once did praise

How did he just fall from grace?

How did he change so drastic?

Distance is only thing that is not tragic.

Much Love Much Life
