When I look in my mirror, I remind me of you.
I see the pain you couldn’t hide.
I see the weariness in your soft brown eyes.
I see your careworn face beneath my disguise.
I see your strength as you faced each day.
I see the sadness that colored your ways.
I see the exact same streaks of greying hair.
I see your courage even though I’m aware
of times when your load was so heavy,
it was far to much for you to bear.
I see your wrinkles, I see your lines.
I see your shadow behind my eyes.
When I look in my mirror I remind me of you.
