The stranger who stares back from the mirror
Never fails to amaze, and scare me.
Who is this person she’s become?
Life’s experience has taught her so much
And yet she just stares back at me with pain in her eyes.
Has life been so hard on her that she’s become a stranger to me ?
Her eyes no longer look to the future.
All she can do is remember the past.
The present does not matter to her.
The life has gone out of her smile
Her blank eyes have lost their spark
I whisper to her, standing there looking back at me in the mirror
“What do we do now ?”
She just stares back at me and whispers, “All you can do, is never give up hope, that love will show us the way back to where we belong.”
And as a silent tears trickles down her face, we turn away, to hide the pain, we both see, deep within our soul.
